Hello again, cars back from V8 developments and running beautifully......apart from... on the motorway, engine temp gauge (sensor is just before the rad) goes from 80 ish normal operating temp around town and spirited driving, to 65/70deg que 5-10mins later the needle jumping up to 110/120 and venting. rad is mounted to the chassis, filling the nose cone and is massively efficient. after driving from Lincoln to Macclesfield via snake pass I think the thermostat is to blame. shuts when temp is too low and the water in the jacket then boils, que temp needle going haywire and venting as the thermostat is forced open. any problems removing the thermostat and putting it squarely in the bin? Any other potential things I've missed, we reprimed and filled all hoses and rad with a leather man at Doncaster Morrisons services at 7pm last night, that seemed to help, but we avoided motorways after that point so engine temp was up anyway. cheers in advance
