Hop on a plane somewhere... That way you can feel better with yourself knowing that you have made 180 other people feel worse ;)

Looking at a slight change of job. And haven't really had to worry about WTD before... Driving hours have usually been the limiting factor when doing distance multidrop work... besides that was part time.

Job I am looking at is 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts but actual driving time is probably no more than 2-3 hours rest is loading/unloading cages. Consequently the firm is quite hot on the WTD 48 hour average.

Overtime is readily available and the difference in pay means that I will be able to make some positive financial headway without doing 300 hour months.

4/4 gives me a 17 week average of 38.82 hours or 660 hours (I have deducted the hour break each shift.

48 hours per week over 17 weeks gives me 816 hours... Which equates to a potential extra of 156 hours O/T over the 17 weeks.

So my question is this:

The 4/4 shift typically gives me 9 weeks of 4 shifts and 8 weeks of 3 shifts... Am I compliant if I do two days overtime on 7 of the 3 shift weeks?

As I understand it, the 17 week reference period is a rolling one, so by not doing OT on the 4 shift weeks I should keep the average within limits.

The reason for the question is twofold; firstly, to get a clearer financial perspective before I commit; and secondly, to make sure that I understand the WTD ready for an assessment next week.

Did you bleed it following coolant change?

Temp to HI on both sides, fan manually down to one bar. Top up. Let it run with the cap off until the fans kick in. Top up. Refit cap fully. Run until fan kicks in. Recheck level.

Try that and report back. If it's still dropping, we can address that later :y
