Thursday 24 April 2014: First big test for the Dodge

Our overnight guest house was at the foot of the climb up to Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park, so it was straight up, and a real test for the Dodge. We got away in the cool of first light and the Dodge pulled well at first, but at the 19 km mark, at 1650m, from the flat plains, she stalled and overheated. We increased the fuel flow once, then again, and eased off the revs a little and the temperature dropped. She climbed well for a few more km until the top at about 1900m, and then stalled and refused to start.

  1. Oh boys my heart sinks when I hear about the over heating. I'm sure you'll find a solution. Any bird life.? So who is the twitcher amongst you. We want avian reports as well! It migration time! All the best. Mary in Darwin
