Jerimi took delivery of his 6 cyl engine today. Will be the first Explorer with the Jabi 6. Expect it to be a rocket ship.

Jy moet die middelste CHT's meet en die agterste EGT's. As daai reg is klink dit goed. As die olie bo 110 is ry dan net met die olievlak op die onderpunt van die dipstick of minder as die helfte.

Jy sal sien die Jab manual se dat jy die olie op die onderste merk moet he as hy warm word. Jy kan ook 'n groter lip onder cowl aansit.
