Radiator, Header Tank & Hoses

Took the opportunity of a spare hour to start to plumb the Radiator, Header Tank and hoses in.

Installation of the Header tank was relatively simple, 2x M4 Rivnuts set into the underside of the top cross member.

I have to confess to have been terrified drilling the radiator and riveting the mounting brackets particularly as this was the second radiator following a fairly catastrophic delivery first time around and long time to replace it.

It is my intention to utilise Evans waterless engine coolant having read many comments and blogs on the subject  – some favourable, some less – but it does seem to be agreed that the higher boiling point, no corrosion and no pressure due to its ability to remain in liquid form can only be advantageous – albeit at a cost!
