    Check out this info from Wikipedia;
    Japanese railways are among the most punctual in the world. The average delay on the Tokaido Shinkansen in fiscal 2018 was 0.7 minutes. When trains are delayed for five minutes, the conductor makes an announcement apologizing for the delay and the railway company may provide a "delay certificate"

    0.7 minutes average delay for the whole year!!
    Crazy efficient eh? I work all around Vic and Oz contract to contract and spend a lot of time on the travel. Live in Geelong and when I need to go in and out of Melbourne CBD or inner suburbs for a month or so each day I public transport it as the road system from the west is so overloaded I can't guarantee I'll get to where I'm going on time. Then you get a 39 degree day and the train system chucks a wobbly. Ridiculous. At least today's return train left on time but again trundled along at trotting pace. Wasn't so pissed seeing it actually took off on time although late on arrival.

    I believe the only warning was a big puddle of green coolant underneath the car.

    Water leaking from the tell tale hole is about the only way mate. It's just the seal that go on them. Impeller might wear out on a really old one but unlikely.

    The tell tale hole is in the neck of the pump sorry if behind the pulley. Hard to see when it's all in place.

    Darrens was so bad it was a jet stream coming out and very visible. With mine I originally thought it was just a leaky gasket so pulled it off and could make it the water mark coming from the weep hole so world of only got worse and worse.

    What's yours doing?

    Mine dumped its coolant all over the road mate. It had got a little hot heading into town for a shower. I came out of the shower at 6pm at the local pool and there was coolant all over the carpark. Ended up pulling the radiator out in the carpark then and there looking for a leak. cleaned the radiator and pressure checked it for a leak at the pool then checked hoses. Refitted the rad and filled with water and started the car and it was pissing out the breather of the water pump. Was bloody average. I grabbed a room at the pub with the family for the night.

    Matty's leaked to failure on the way back to camp that night!! What are the chances! Same presentation. I replaced mine in the wash bay next to the mechanics and then matty did his on the beach that afternoon when we fgot back to him. We then packed up camp and dashed to the next location and caught the punt ferry across the Pieman river by 1 minute! Big Day.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
