So had some drama today. Had previously noticed a bit of coolant venting when in traffic due to heat and after a run up the mway today to caffeine and classics we hit the queue to get in and airflow across radiator stopped and the heat got up. Started to get worse by the time i got through to find a park and then POP
It dumped coolant and the top hose had popped off the radiator. Thankfully no parts damaged.
The OS boes came to the rescue lending tools water bottles and filling them up. And holding the bonnet up for me haha.
Had to take the airbox out, which we found had some curious mods, to get to the radiator as its angle mounted in the nose. Got the hose back on and topped up with some coolant and checked out all ok.
Its possibly the radiator fans arent coming on from the temp switches. One comes on when AC is on so I can use that for now.
Also seeing Clint the RB anorak loves these motors he cast his certifying eye over the turbo and spotted the waste gate actuator not hooked up and the wastegate itself was just flappin in the breeze. I knew i had an issue with lack of boost but hadnt even started to look. When I got home I hooked it up and whacked a split pin through. Fired up and it started making the noises you here when its a rainy night. Went for a doort through the tunnel and yup it does hunnits now. So just like that Clint solved my problem...pic of the culprit now restrained
