    has anyone fitted a temp censer to the gearbox and transfer box, this might sound daft but I do a bit of long distance driving a few times a year with a trailer and it might help me keep an eye on them

    I used to go contract hay baling with my Leyland tractor.
    I knew the gearbox was getting a bit warm when I burnt my leg on the casing!!!:eek:
