Cool

I guess I'll be the odd man out, JP.

When I inspected and tore down my engine (after running far to close to the temp gauge redline), my thermo was locked in the closed position. Even the boiling test mentioned previously failed to open it.

Consequently the flaps were always closed, resulting in a quick warm up and potential meltdown. So much for fail-safe systems!

Regards,
