Aston Service Dorset : Radiator and Fittings

The thermo-syphonic impeller-assisted water cooling system includes a radiator, five bladed belt driven fan and chain driven water pump.

The system is controlled by a thermostat valve located in a separate housing lying across the exhaust camshaft cover.

The temperature gauge bulb is in the radiator header tank on the DB2 and DB2/4 MkI cars, whilst on the MkII it is located in the thermostat housing.

Aston Service Dorset : The Exhaust System

Originally the exhaust was a siamesed, two into one single system, made from mild steel. There was an optional twin system available that gave a moderate increase in power output.

We are able to offer single or twin systems in mild and stainless steel which are made to order. Options also include flange or cup fittings depending on manifolds fitted to the car.


All associated brackets, hangers and other exhaust parts available are shown below, unfortunately early type hangers are not available.
