I only get an 'idiot light' for engine temps ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ณ

This kit (@ยฃ4) with the 'external' sensor lashed against the heater hose [hottest outlet one] will give me a rough >> direction of travel >> for the engine/water temps.



This guy agrees to 'approximation' but, essentially, some number [..trends] is better than none ๐Ÿ‘



So ... Results *partially, are in ๐Ÿ˜

18.2 cold water tap running
24.2 ambient (see thermo display)
48.0 hot full cup, direct from kettle boil
85.0 immersed in hot, direct from kettle boil

The area I'm most concerned about is the ability of the sensor to 'sense/register' a high temp (water) through a vessel wall (cup) ๐Ÿ˜•

I don't know how to discover the 'sensor spec' but they can be got as a 'washer tab' style - to bolt flat faced onto the 'hot' part...

I may just buy one and run an identical set of tests ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Power courtesy of SKY 12V router supply.





...... This, for instance, has the sensor in a splodge of resin (not a metal tube!)

Interesting feature, but no details ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š

..... my brake master cyl/servo is infront of the n/s passenger.

I'm aware a fair number of car makers will [if not re engineering/no actual room] link the brakes across with a tube/bracket set up.

I haven't actually looked under the dash space 'for proof'.... but I'm finding the parts book pdfs show no brake assembly for RHD cars = the pedal clevis goes directly into servo/pushrod LHD.

Not a frequently bought part, agreed, but there must be some jiggery-pokery around setting pedal height RHD v LHD.... ๐Ÿค”

I have a loose assortment of drills, a box set up to 10mm. But no 12mm ๐Ÿ˜•

My gear ball is a bit crook as, both the thread is wrong + the gearstick[12mm] is threaded high up into the factory knob. My plan was to just unscrew the factory one and wizz this on.. ๐Ÿ™„

I'm going to chop the threaded end off (cut wheel / Dremel*clone) and drill out the knob to 12mm = press on! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Went to fit the mudflaps, on the front...

ACE ๐Ÿ‘ (.... on the drivers side, screws came straight out ๐Ÿฅณ/)

Ooops ๐Ÿ˜• .... Passenger side screws just whizz round in plastic clips.

Will be Dremel *clone the heads off/have ordered pk. new clips ยฃ3.75 ๐Ÿ™„ F..F..S..



Is there a viable option to 'yark out' the panhead, with pincers... or likely thin wing edge metal nastiness ๐Ÿคฆ
