    Default John Bennett Water Cooling System?

    Hi all,

    I just scored on of these and can't find much info about it. Can anyone tell me anything about it. A mate gave it to me as he had no use for it. Being the seagull I am I took it.

    OK, I have a little more info. The unit is called an Ecotherm. It was made by a guy named John Bennet who used to be in airport west.

    It consists of a thermostst housing that goes on the lower water hose and a director that goes somewhere else. It's said to radically reduce water temp, especially at the rear of the engine block.

    I need fitting instructions if anyone has them. I've been googling for hours wit no luck.

    Will post pics later.

    Full feature , issue 69 supercar magazine april/may 1995. I don,t have a scanner , so I cant help out there, maybe wabs has an old issue of the mag (& a scanner). Or I could take it to work and photocopy it, or get one of the office chicks to scan it for me. I,ll see how I go. cheers.

    Thanks Tombstone. I got your email. Will convert and post tonight. It looks like a great little invention. It makes a lot of sense when you read the article.

    Your efforts are very much appreciated.
