radiator came adrift

Post by oneday on Sat 07 May 2016, 5:00 pm

me mates troopy had its radiator break the top clamp which is soldered to the top tank.
something that is very rare.

broken fan, stuffed radiator and hoses to boot

got a new radiator, new radiator cap, 2 new hoses and a new 8 blade fan and away we went again.

if u haven't changed your water pump for a while then its well advised to. This troopy hasn't done all that many kilometers so all good.

ouch, that doesnt sound cheap and a bugga to fix out bush. worth a look at all vehicle radiator mounting and maybe beef it up a bit for the corrugations and rough conditions out there. good post as its something usually overlooked.
cheers.
