Hey Truckster, how's the overhauled fan going. Has it had a decent workout yet? I understand how most things work but not these bloody fans!!!!
Mine will not lockup at all so I'm very keen to know........
Also how'd you get it to Berrima - courier I guess would be the way to go?
Cheers

Funny you should ask!

Went out today to Tynong/Gembrook... few good hills and stuff, and it NEVER got over 1/2.. Actually didnt get to 1/2!!!!!

BEST $80 I ever spent. You have no idea the size of the smile, or the relief I feel knowing that it is FIXED *fingers Crossed*


Aussie Posted mine there in a padded bag, Registered mail so it shouldnt get lost.

Yeah Bruce, but it was only about 15 degrees out in Gembrook today. We'll all be interested to see how it goes on a hot day.
Regards Andrew.

My 60 series never gets over 1/4 here in Qld, but put it up the Toowoomba Range and its a different story.I'll let you know Truckster the results of my overheating problem when I have the Pyrometer Etc fitted on Wednesday and push it up some steep hills, failing that I may be looking at your idea.

Forgot to ask you what Boost & Exhaust temps you are running on the Patrol.

I'm interested too, truckster- seems pretty common for these fans not to work as they're supposed to. Are you happy with it now- and do you hear it cut in. I don't think mine's working..

Well what other options did I have? If it didnt work, I had done everythign possible, and if everytime I hit a hill the temp guage hits "H"elp, Id rather it be someone elses problem...

Exactly think of all the work I had done - AND NONE OF IT HAD WORKED!?!

Anyway the new GU plenty have driven it, your the first one to notice any difference! I would have laughed at him, he probably hasnt sold one new GU since release! $30k++ Change over, what you driving a G60 or 40 series?

Yeh you're right probably $40k++.
BTW when I say I was impressed it was only in comparison with my old girl- not the previous model- I had never driven a GU.
