Pablo asked about this on our UK Type 3&4 club forum, but we don't get
consistently high air temperatures here, so I referred him to type3.org as I
know Keith had problems with his Type 4 rebuild. Hopefully when Pablo has
checked all the things that have been mentioned, he may find the problem,
but I've a feeling Keith hasn't fully solved it yet, though.
