    Replaced the Murphy temp gauge in my Kenworth. Drove it 30km and the new gauge was showing very hot. No....
    The end off the old sender had found its way all the way to the thermostat and was jamming it shut! Lucky I found it and lucky I didn't cook a $15000 Cummins.

    mate had an old 6cyl valiant and thought the rear main seal was leaking so he pulled the motor out to fix it and discovered it was the rocker cover leaking
