officially a syncro owner from today whoa
hi guys i am now the proud owner of my first syncro drove her back today from pe to kzn long drive. she is a 1989 caravelle sincere with a 2.2 toyota diesel motor, had a very good drive back, but she does get a bit warm, so any advice on that would be great, maybe bigger radiator should do. i want to start tomo with engine gear box, them move onto suspension, etc. so bare with me guys if i ask silly questions got a lot to learn about the syncro.

@ Zoodog

it will run hot no matter what you add, my 3ct Has longer diff ratio's and longer 4th gear to bring revs down, 2x radiators, oil cooler and intercooler, and it still runs hot, these motors are designed to run Hot, Max temp is 115 degrees on them,

very disconcerting when driving,

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
