got my rad out and washed about a ton of baked on sand out of it Shocked no wonder she overheated! Should be ok now some air can get thru it Very Happy

washed sand out of the alternator
washed sand out of the starter
washed sand off all the underneath
washed sand out of the inside
pressure washed all the months of built up crap off my engine
welded some holes in the exhaust

did an ATF change
put fresh water and new antifreeze in it
and treated her to a new rad cap

Very Happy

i blocked the rad on my paj and had overheating problems. little tip if you don't use the aircon remove the aircon rad that sits right infront of the main rad, it helps shed loads with cooling and if you leave the leccy fan in it will come on for extra cooling when you press the aircon button

Ordered new "Landrover recovery vehicle" stickers...

found out that if i tune my radio to 522mhz on medium wave, and rev my engine it sounds like a cross between a gameboy and a V8.. so that station is programmed in to my radio now.
