Re: River Trip Safety - how many cars is safe

Do understand though that the window is limited. Probably only about 3-4 months of the year when it can safely be done. It will be very dangerous in the rainy season. Some decent rain 100's of km away can make the river flow, and if you are in it you probably won't be able to escape. There's a reaso...

Re: Me and bad habits!

Thanks Martin

On mine, the bottom seat was pretty worn, so it has been plugged and a single-acting thermostat fitted, so the bypass is not in operation at all.

Re: River Trip Safety - how many cars is safe

I think it depends on how awake and aware you are. And in terms of getting stuck and/or un-stuck, this depends on how prepared and risk-averse you are. If you get stuck in one of the mud-holes that sometimes appear in the upper reaches of the Klein Letaba, you might struggle to get out on your own. ...

Re: Me and bad habits!

Thanks Cedric Answers inside the quote. Peter, is your turbo both water and oil cooled? Nope, just oil. I don't have an accurate water temp gauge ( madman ) etc, so can only speak from the standard dash gauge. On mine it never goes up passed halfway. In fact it sits to the left of the wiggly lines o...

Re: Me and bad habits!

I guess the NA has less issues, purely because it is creating less power in the first place. Speaking to other guys with TD42T's it doesn't sound like mine is considerably worse than normal either. Can't really fit a bigger radiator in there. Theoretically, if I could move the intercooler and air co...

Re: Me and bad habits!

Some feedback. The River Trip this last weekend was the first decent test, both on longer distances and off the road. Combined tar road consumption there and back was 7.65km/l wnd consumption for the off-road bit was 5km/l. For the first half my tires were too hard though (1.4 front and 1.6 rear) wh...

Behalwe vir arme Alex. Jammer maat.
