Don't think I could have avoided the temptation for so long though.
I had intended to do it a couple of weeks ago but when I added the coolant I literally filled the engine - the o-ring on the water pipe that goes into
the water/oil pump had failed and the sump filled with expensive coolant. I was not happy and had to drain everything, replace the o-ring, sump
gasket blah blah...
But then, you werenít talking about starting the engine just two weeksí ago...

Whats the issue with the rad'?
Well, sat for 15ish minutes at 6deg ambient and it was up-at 100deg. Firstly, some plonker didnít think a fan would be necessary. Secondly itís an
ancient Serck unit that probably isnít as good as it should be. I am however a bit scared by the cost of new custom rads. Oh well.
What temp will yours sit at Adi? I should say that my oil temp is yet to go above 60-odd deg.
I wouldn't worry about it then. On mine without the manual fan switch on or any airflow it'll go all the way to the ECU fan switch on at
105c. Won't take too long either. Once warmed up/run it will rise rapidly once stationary so I'd say you def' want a fan.
