Considering that sometimes a makeshift repair can be not just more cost-effective, but also last longer than a standard replacement part, sounds reasonable

Shame about your coolant tank, althought I feel that a replacement would be better, if you can fix it - give it a try, if it fails well you can always replace it.

Next week my finish mpguino should arrive, so I'm hoping that I can get that installed over midsummer and then I can try to squeeze out a few more km to a liter.

Speaking of midsommar, I might have to raid the forest and make some bastukvastar, then have a few midsommar saunas. I have an italien friend I'm sure that it will be new experience to hit himself with twigs from a tree
