I have a leak in the cooling system somewhere on the bottom of or below the radiator and can't tell where it is, at least without removing the rad. Is it much of a task to remove it ? and is there a known common problem with it ?

Thanks, Dwayne

Hey Folks, is all the hype about Anti-Freeze for Diesels something to be concerned with, especially in a 25 yr. old motor ?

YES. Use an antifreeze approved for diesel engine use and in these engines use a bottle of DCA4 coolant conditioner for good measure... Cooling system maintenance on a Ford Basildon engine is not something to be neglected or taken lightly.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to take the tank out, it's nearly full but I do understand "it's not worth the fight" too. About finding the leak first, it's in such a place as I cannot see where it's coming from..dripping down in the belly of the bolster and off the axle support. Almost seems to be a cracked in the lower hose nipple but I can't verify it. Anyway, thanks for all the input guys, we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Oil is not a big issue. That's just the engine oil cooler that's integrated into the rad tank. It will lose a pint or two. Removal of the rad requires removal of the hood, fuel tank, supports, etc. The hydraulic cooler doesn't need to be removed; just dropped forward. Overall removing the rad is not a big job. I would endeavor to find the leak first tho.

the fuel tank does not have to be taken loose much less off, it is easier if you take the front sheet metal off though

It probably doesn't have to be taken off.... but some things are not worth the fight. If it's empty I'd take it off. You can either support the side rails and remove the front support or try and wiggle it out towards the engine. Take your pick.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
