Yes it did mate, replaced the cap once we got to Esperance - none of the roadhouses had one FFS :roll: :roll: :roll:

Bought a new lower hose as the spring had half rotted away and replaced the thermostat as well just for laughs , it was rock solid at 195 all day Sunday even when I held it flat knacker for 45 minutes punching into a headwind and as soon as you back off into a town it would drop to 185. Didn't use a drop of water either :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.
