Problem 1

Well, it has been sometime but the trike is all back together.

First problem was an air-lock in the water system.
This meant that it was not long before the temp red lined.
There is no thermostat, so the water should have just pumped its way regardless.
To make matters worse I was running on LPG, and due to the lack of hot water reaching the vaporiser it soon got a layer of steaming ice on it.
I let the engine cool a bit, then fired it up and gave it a good rev. This resulted in a geezer of water coming out of the fill hole and a mass of gurgling.
6 pints later and it was full.

I’m gonna need to drain some off again and add coolant.
I just hope it does not airlock again.
