Re: Calico night run June 19th 9pm

Bummed I missed the night run. I really appreciate you guys waiting. I ended up getting into camp after 10:30pm and was having overheating issues. Figured it wasn't a good idea to try and catch up and push my luck.

I was able to grab a new radiator in Barstow. Swapped in the new one and ran the loop Saturday afternoon. Then ended up snapping the steering box bolts just as I was about to finish the loop.

Thankfully, Chris (SoCal-XJ FB group) was camped nearby and had some extra bolts. After fighting with one bolt that was sheered flush with the steering box, we were able to bolt the steering back up and drive out.

What’re the odds that someone nearby had spare steering box bolts? Incredibly slim, I’m sure. So I’d say you got darned lucky there. Anyway, I hope your next wheeling trip goes better.

Wow, what luck. So did the radiator swap fix the issue?

Re: Calico night run June 19th 9pm

Absolutely lucky Chris had some. If he hadn't though I had met up with another XJ on the trail (Dan Cole) and he drove back to his house to grab some bolts. Once Chris showed up though I waved Dan off.

The new radiator definitely helped, but there is still some issue I need to investigate. I still had some high temps when climbing hills on the freeway heading home. It normally never gets past ~215 once the electric fan kicks on.
