  • new radiator(F150)
  • Radiator arrived on Sunday & I got it installed this afternoon. It was a pretty simple job, the lower hose clamps being the hardest thing to get at. Nothing obvious external on the old one...

    Guess I could cut off one of the tank ends & look for clogged tubes.

    The truck seems to be happy again....took it out for an hour or so with no issues. The dual core radiator took surprisingly little more coolant so far. I'll check the level again tomorrow.

  • As long as it cured the overheating problem, looks like you made the right decision on which medicine to use.....happy it worked!

  • LoL, over the last couple of years I replaced every component in cooling system. The last piece fixed it. I'm a paragon of efficiency.

  • When ever you are looking for something lost or the missing link, it is always in the last place you look.
