She's breaking up captain

Post by HighlyJetted on Sun Jan 13, 2013 10:39 pm







On the GPS it achieved a whopping 96mph, the speedo hits the the max stopper at 91mph, and there's more left after 96mph. I think she'll hit the ton.

Obviously this wasn't on any public highway or byway.

Try this, two brand new thermostats from the same shop, the same brand, same part number.

One makes the water temp stay where the photo above shows it.

The other makes it sit just a smidgin over the half marker.

I ended up putting the "hotter" one in the other van after much deliberation, turns out this thermostat has stuck itself closed.

Brand new, no more than 2 months old. Must have been ran for maximum of 20 hours.

I hate how everything is made in china and quality control is a thing of the past.

No, the white one is a nice clean van.

But I need to get the wheels re-balanced as ever since I had the tyres fitted to the compomotive wheels, they have causes some steering tremor above 70mph.
