Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Being aquainted with a few running temperature issues myself, I find this interesting. So are you blaming an electric fan blowing or drawing air through the radiator for keeping the coolant temperature below 90C? The way I see it, that stat must be open for the fan to be able to drag the coolant te...

The Smiths unit sat at approx 3/4 when warned up and very rarely shifted up or down unless I booted it but even then it was only a fraction of an inch. I oft...

Re: New club mag is out

All valid points. The font is a bugger and especially as, you are correct, the content is very heavy this time. I don't like pushing out lots of text and leave out the photos.
