Mark my brother does very good work if you can get him to quit talking!
And I have found that if I slow down and take more coffee breaks I do better work too!
We did miss him as part of the crew yesterday but we enlisted the help of my neighbor Marvin who is smiling next to the radiator.
I posted comments with each picture which didn't come thru so I will do a little more explaining:
The radiator wouldn't hold antifreeze so we had a good radiator shop clean it out and test it. It apparently had a leak up towards the top in the overflow pipe. Our Cousin Scott spent several hours just blowing out the crude from between the fins. He told me (as I wasn't there)taking off the radiator was the hardest part of this project. He said almost every bolt and nut had succumbed to rust and corrosion and broke off as he was taking it apart. He said it was good I wasn't there when he put and easyout thru one of his fingers!
We still have the brake and belt pulley seals to replace and of course check the brake lining too.
To answer your question it takes 4 gallons of coolant to fill the system.
Mark one final thing.... ask Chuck if he has a gasket stretcher available.
