Dirty milky slime green old coolant dumped from the gold 240 wagon: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 8613841920

And flushed through with water twice (yet to dump the second lot) and hoses off to clean around the fittings which were a bit crusty: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 5196538881

It's not often that I use the HDR feature of the N5, but when I do it's because of excess contrast in a tstat housing. :-/

Will pull the drain cock on the block in the morning and dump it out fully before refilling with a nice 35% blend of fresh nulon coolant. Yay.

Forgot to take a snap of the cleaned up housing, but it doesn't matter much, that SOHC head is on borrowed time :-D

Fresh coolant in after another flush and a proper drain through the drain cock I didn't know these engines had: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 0674894848

Next coolant change: In with the DOHC setup :-)
