Donor Vehicle for Bleeding Demo

The big one! Once again we are at Stourport in June with live bands, catering, an excursion, the AGM etc.....and over 300 Bongos munching grass contentedly on the banks of the River Severn.

Donor Vehicle for Bleeding Demo

Post by thedogsbollox » Fri Jun 10, 2011 12:16 pm

As some of you know, i had a boil up on Tuesday and it looks like the problem is the Thermostat. I fortunately possess a Blueprint Stat that i will be fitting today. This will keep me going till i get to the Bash. I want to fit an Original Mazda one so if you need a donor vehicle at the Bash then i will hold off and we can do a Stat change/Bleed demo if that's cool.

Stat replaced, just waiting for the GF's sprog to get off to his dad's so i have a spare pair of hands/feet for the bleed.
Bunged the old stat in some hot water just to see if it opened and it did so keep your fingers crossed that there is not another problem.
Ady, you don't think my spotting problem on the tailgate would be coolant getting burned up?
