Default Fit 2010 cooling system to F4 1000R

The old rads and oil intercooler have been removed. I also removed the water manifold that sits at the back of the cylinder head and changed it for a Brutale type which has no spur pipe ( intercooler feed ).

I removed the exhaust system and fitted a Brutale oil take off plate.

This all looks imho very neat and purposeful. : )

Here's a pic of the new plate. It looks so much better with all the little pipes and hoses to the intercooler gone. There is a reason for it looking better..It is better.

Next step is to fit the 2010 Upper radiator and the proper oil cooler which is presently over at Henry's ( Alumacraft ) being slightly adapted. I'll detail those adaptations with pics when it comes back to me..pretty soon : )

While the exhaust system was off I took the time to check the torques of the sump bolts. They were all undertorque spec..ie loose. The engine has only done 800 miles. Food for thought...

joe


PS I'll add in some description of context of each pic L8 R as have to go to work : )

Here is the Thermostat Housing I am fitting off a 2010 F4.

Note the little indent in the housing where the thermostat aligns. This is important to align correctly as it allows pressure build up at the thermostat to be dissipated and at same time the water is directed into top of radiator via the little stub pipe..Pre 2010 F4s don't have a stub pipe.( This in the early phase when the engine is cold and the thermostat is shut).

The main water feed into the top hose is horizontally oriented on the 2010 and vertically on the previous F4. The little stub pipe may also have a role to play in bleeding air to the top of the radiator when filling.

Note the little Stub feed pipe on the top left of the radiator.

Also note how MV have designed in two radiator fans ( really convenient for me as I have two conveniently located fan connectors on my harness : ) ). These fans act as stress members to reduce sagging of the top edge of the rad,,,,,In fact they have also designed in a third bracket to support the Rad.

Also note..The Thermostat is made in Italy ; )

Engine pictures showing how the Oil water intercooler has been removed along with it's yards of plumbing and replaced with a neat Brutale feed plate ..Two unions to go to and from oil cooler and one oil feed pipe to top end...

Also another pic showing the old F4 coolant manifold has been removed as it has a stub pipe on it ( no longer needed ) and replaced with a Brutale version.
