    Yep, my gauge is faulty. I should have listened to the mechanic when he said to not bother with an aftermarket temp gauge, it will give you endless headaches from watching it too much. He was right...

    So after all the cooling system work, Im not sure. I have a road near by, it has a long up hill run, not steep, but goes for maybe a K or so. At 60kph, 14c outside temps, the water temps hit 95c, without even pushing it. Then I go to Rossco's. Pass his place and go down into Yarra Glen. Turn around and wait for a break in the traffic and blasted back up the hills. 4Th gear, outside temps of about 18c, sitting around circa 90kph and the temps rose to 95c again. But slower than I was expecting. I think I will wait for a warm day and hook up the camper and give it a flogging. If the temps hit 95c and stay there (wishful thinking) I'll be happy. Otherwise next thing is to remove the injector pump and get it tested to make sure its doing what its supposed to do.


    Other than that, its good to get out in the snotter for a run. Gotta love the whistle of the big GT Garret turbo's. Very distinctive sound. And I've finally fixed the water rail leak after three years and going back to the mechanic seven times. Gotta get something done and right? Do it yourself....

    Did you pick up the cable crimper from @AB for your winch? Are you going to need it - I will be across that way soon and will pick it back up if not as can use it now.

    Mine seems to sit around the 95 under work and doesn't get any higher. Even the very limited beech work she got in tassie before I blocked the radiator out didn't go over 95

    With lockdown mate no I haven't sorry. I do need to get onto this, but life is all of a sudden much busier now with our house reno's due to start very soon. I am madly rushing to get things sorted. I had a new head unit for the Patrol sitting on the passenger floor for the last month or two that I need to put in aswell.

    Im just hoping this fan setup will keep things cool enough though when it needs too. But I do think there is little difference to this setup to the reoiled OEM hub and Infinity fan now I have used both. Just getting the right amount of oil in the hub is the key to cooling goodness.

    We'll see when the weather warms up.
