    H John.
    Thanks for the reply.
    Rover Diff which has appeared to stop leaking.
    Yes it has oil in it, I changed it a week ago, after the leaking had stopped.

    Fitted Voltage stabilizer today.
    Perfect replacement for the old one, and fits exactly as the old one did.
    Just needed to make a short Earth lead, between fixing screw/VS bracket and common chassis Earth, as per instructions.
    Lead fitting as per original.
    Just needed to find a longer fixing screw, which I have a box full.
    Dash came out and went back without problems.
    Now Fuel Tank and Temp gauges working.
    Thanks for the link, Phil b

    Good afternoon.
    Could of brains trust questions.
    Gauges working good, bit temp one sits on top end of white line, between C and N, at running temp.
    If idles for a bit gauge starts to rise, so all apeas to be working.
    I run Repco Green Coolant. Would this cause lower than Normal Running Temps ?
    Would anyone have a part number for a Oil Pressure switch, obtainable from Repco/AutoOne. My original one was playing up, I just pulled it out, and cleaned with contact cleaner. Lots of black kept coming out. Sprayed till clear. Refitted all appears back to normal.
    Thanks.

    The type of coolant used (within reason) should have no effect on running temperature. The fact that it sits on the top end of the white line is more likely to be manufacturing tolerance in the gauge and sender than an actual variation from correct temperature, and if it is an actual temperature variation, it is probably the thermostat rather than the coolant. And a temperature rise when working above where it normally sits probably represents either retarded spark or a cooling system defect (slipping fan belt, blocked radiator fins, low coolant etc etc) rather than the type of coolant.
