Pela pumps are great, pricey but great. I use it on cars that have a drain plug! SO much nicer.

The actual coolant temperature was likely in the mid-90s during that drive. The gauge goes to 4 blobs (nominally, 100C) once the coolant hits 100, and it stays there (4 blobs) until the temp gets below 95C. Get a Scangauge to see actual temperature in 1C increments. Or 1F if you prefer.

Send me a PM when you get a chance for the registry, cheers.

I like my oil extractor - the Air Power America - Liquivac - same company that sells the Topsider.

Great colour! Congratulations!

I remember seeing a reference on Clubsmartcar for this fellow, who used to bring in the regulators.

Flying Tiger Development

These guys also have the parts, though I might want to use a low limit credit card set up especially for mail order.
