New radiator, then blues.


I treated Tru to a bit more cooling leeway the other day by fitting a new radiator with a bit more cooling capacity meant for the turbo and V8 variants.
This should help keeping her cool when she's working on a hot day, although there wasn't any real problem there. What was of concern was her model's weakness in the transmission heat exchanger in the radiator. They have a habit of failing and mixing coolant into the transmission causing its destruction.

The new radiator with improved exchanger should ease some worries.

The few drops of transmission fluid lost when fitting was enough to trigger alarm bells from it but I was going to do a fluid change anyway (at least 4 litres worth of change), and I was glad I did as the old fluid was quite yucky from it appearing to have done 192k km without any servicing. Now I'll need to do another semi-fluid change very soon, followed by another not long after.

At least Tru appears to have had a fairly easy life, so all should be OK.

Naturally and totally unrelated her battery died as if shot by a bazooka when I decided to do this job. It wouldn't hold charge more than a few minutes and stranded me at Woolies carpark, meaning I couldn't shop around for a new one and had to pay Repco prices for one, ouch!

25 days now and Peter still hasn't started his new toy (the ride on mower), maybe he's frightened there may be some boat people (refugees) hiding in the growth, and he doesn't want to scare them.

  1. If Peter hasn't cut the grass in 25 day's he's going to have a heck of a time even with the new rider. It's going to bog dow every 3 M's. He'll have to cut it twice, once on high then he'll have to lower it.
