    Have also put a new temp sender unit in too aswell as the new hose clamps and flushing etc and put new coolant in the nulon green 100% concentrate and mixed it a 50:50 mix and had air bubbles bled out she always use to rise even without Any load and On idling or On the highway but would rise up and down from about just under half to over he full h

      firsly have you had the cooloing fan looked at ? when these clutch type fans play up you will get the overheating problems your getting now. look into this before you go out and buy a larger cored radiator as you could be waisting money on a new radiator where its the fan issue.

        Save your money. Check the fan clutch and put a new stock DiD radiator in it. You'll get another 200,000km out of it and the DID one has a thicker core. The cooling system on these is otherwise quite well up to the job even when towing.

          Hi
          Google winner racing , 54mm alloy radiator, will solve ur problems I towed a 3 horse too with DID 26mm and was not up to job .
          And fit an Engine Watchdog digital gauge and stop all the guessing on temp gauge accuracy !!!!!

            sounds good but only 26mm core on the DiD engines ? my core on the NM is a good 35 to 40 mm. my aircon core is around the 20mm mark.

                Second the clutch fan, see my thread here:

                I changed much that I didn't need to chasing my overheating issues, including radiator.

                    NM petrols have a circuit board problem that causes eratic temp gauge behaviour. well documented on here somewhere.

                      Yeah, absolutely, temp gauge is a know issue.

                      Bit from my understanding, the temp gauge is a random intermittent thing which causes the needle to go full temp one moment and normal the next.

                      If the needle raises only in hot weather, low traffic speeds, towing on hills or sand etc, it's likely a legitimate issue.

                        hi darwiniandude. only posting it in this thread as it hadn't been mentioned yet.,

                        when I had 'wandering temp gauge syndrome' I managed to positively confirm it by using the following method described by another valued member -
                        turn ignition on but do not start car - watch gauge for 10 minutes - if temp gauge starts moving around you have an infected circuit board.
