Can anyone identify the cooling system valve pictured below?
It hangs off the gearbox end of the MI16 (S1) inlet manifold.
Connected by a piece of rightangled bend hose.
Tube running off it is open ended and points to the ground.
What is its purpose?
Where do the wires connecting to it get their signal from?
Can it be dispensed with?
If the coolant flow to the manifold can be blocked off without affecting anything else I may be able to dispense with it.
Warm manifold might be good for fuel vaporisation and economy but not the best for max power.
