  • light at end of tunnel got dimmer
  • I'm about done getting the naa finished,or so I thought.I'm only waiting on a drive flange for loader and getting new hyd lines made. I was in the shop finishing some small details and cleaning up when I noticed a small stream of green liquid running down front dead center of radiator.This sucks I have all the nicely painted sheet metal on and the loader install except for flange and lines, and now this.I've got to pull all that back off to remove radiator. Why now? this tractor has been setting in the shop all these months with new coolant in radiator, it looks good, no old repairs or bent fins or tubes and looks good.This isn't an aftermarket piece of junk. Sorry, I had to vent some!!!!!!!!!!!!!.God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • I have a 641 with a Wagner loader. While changing out the pump one of the lines flipped
    over and hit the radiator and it started leaking. I happened to have some gas tank repair gunk and so I mixed it up ,put it on and no more leaks. That was about 6 years ago and still no leaks.

  • Over my lifetime & many radiators, I have tried many "sealer" brands & I don't think this one can be beat. Of course if the hole is large enough no sealer will fix it.

  • An old farmer's trick was to put pepper in to stop rad leaks. You can also try some BARS-LEAK too before you pull hood and everything else off again. Might be worth a try anyway...

  • If I was getting rid of it I might do one of those or even oatmeal. But that is only postponing the inevitable, I've been very meticulous on everything about this to this point and even though I made every thing look really good, this is a working tractor. Every thing we own has to earn it's keep. I've done a lot of upgrading and modernizing on the old girl and spent some money but it's still cheaper than buying a newer unit and I know what we have. I was so P/O ed I just had to vent,thanks and God Bless,Beth and Allen.

  • May be, but I've been running the IH successfully with that for more than 20 years and the MF for 3-4 years without leaks.
