cooling debate

My 2pworth is that the cooling on my LC2 70 (3 litre TD) is brilliant. Last
year I towed our caravan to N Spain and back in temperatures up to 38
celsius, doing 85mph and occasionally 90 on the Autoroutes. The gauge never
shifted . . . . until we got a stone through the rad at speed as we were
approaching Boulogne on the way home. I wasn't aware of this, but the gauge
started seesawing up and down (as opposed to its usual rock-steadiness) so I
got off the motorway and stopped. There was a jet of hot coolant coming out
through the grill and hitting the road about 10 feet in front. My point is
that the temp seems to stay spot on, but the gauge will certainly tell you
when there's a problem.
(We had a new rad fitted in Boulogne - the old one was mashed in too many
rows and we couldn't wait for a recoring - by the Toyota main dealer who
also checked the head and hoses and only charged about ?25 per hour for
labour. How about that?)

In Norway they'll charge you 950,-NOK per hour-how about THAT? :-(

Hey Guys
You are joking about the labour cost in your Toy dealer. MIne charges 50
euro an hour and I think thats bad.
