      At the recent 90th Anniversary meeting near Clermont-Ferrand I met a very nice couple who were singing the praises of enhancing the engine cooling by placing a split tennis ball on the rear of the engine bay (exhaust side), and leaving the rear bonnet lock undone.

      If so, would I be best to put the ball where I have the circle on the photo, with the slit going over the rib marked with the arrow?

      Many thanks!

        By placing it as you suggest, there will be less chance of it vibrating loose and falling out.

        Others trap a ball more to the rear of the bonnet, around the position of the handle.

         

        Courtesy of Phil Allison, on the 6 I have removable spacers that screw onto a stud replacing one of the two screws fixigs for the bonnet catch.
