Re: Hot battery

Check the either end of the battery. See if the ends are bulged out. If they are then the battery has sulphated and will struggle holding a charge or provided enough amps on cranking.

Re: the no dosh LJ revamp

I'd whip the stat out and see if that helps with the cooling. If it does , i could have a look in the book at work for you and see if there's a suitable replacement that opens up at a lower temp, thus dropping the heat earlier. Top idea bud.

Is the old rad in good condition?
Tried running it with the thermostat out?
