Re: replacement radiator

You may have a point about the size, I'm not sure about the thickness or number of rows in the Suzuki rad but it's actual surface area is a little smaller than the Triumph unit, maybe not a problem in Lancashire this time of year when the temp gauge struggles to get halfway up but it will be interes...

Re: replacement radiator

Thanks mike, that is another good option for me , I'm sure I'll get it all connected up. The rad itself is still in it's packaging as I'm not ready to install it yet, the supplier said the outlets were 28mm and I think the originals might be a bit bigger but I'm just waiting for some tyres at the mo...

Re: replacement radiator

Thanks Ian, I will see what hoses I can get off the shelf instead of disturbing the stat housing and a steel link pipe seems a good idea to connect between the two. I have not started to install the rad yet as at the moment I'm busy cleaning and painting the wheels prior to getting some new tyres to...

Re: replacement radiator

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292269035924 Hi, Since my last message I have bought a Suzuki Vitara radiator as shown in the link, it will require some mountings fabricating, the bottom hose is in the correct position and the expansion pipe too, but the top connection will need a flexible hose and I may...

Re: replacement radiator

Thanks Johnnydog, I think for the sake of longevity I'm after a new radiator and I was attracted to the modern units not just on the basis of price but also as an up-grade. I'm always interested in modern products for our cars and I wondered if anyone else had gone down this route with the rads. The...

Re: replacement radiator

Thanks, I will look into that as well, it is a bit tricky finding a non-specific replacement but I thought it was worth looking into.
Cheers,

replacement radiator

Hello everyone, I wanted to know what peoples views and experiences are on radiators for our cars. Mine has just sprung a little leak about half way up the core which for the time being I will deal with (I hope) with Radweld as I'm on the continent at the moment. However when I return home I will wa...

courtesy light switch

Hello, One of my courtesy light switches has failed, lost it's spring, I have repaired it by dismantling and fitting a new small spring between the end of the plunger and the body of the switch. Meanwhile I thought that I would get some stock in but Rimmers, Witor, and other well known names are out...
