My 720 has a hole in the radiator. Ive never had to work on a radiator before. If looks like a little tube is smashed. Think it can be fixed? What's my options?

I have absolutely no idea how it happened. Looks like a bolt or something punched it but I'm racking my brain and can't remember even being close to it. I've been putting the tractor back together after having the block off. Only thing close is the fan when removing it, but where the hole is i don't think the fan bolt could get it without a blade hitting too.

Cut both flues top and bottom with a pair of dikes. Leave about a quarter inch sticking up. Crimp it together, clean and solder it up. Losing 2 flues isn't going to hurt unless it was already overheating.

I try to put a piece of rectangular sheet metal over the radiator when working near by. Better not talk too much as the radiator for my 60 std. is laying on the floor beside the tractor waiting to be installed after the PS pump and fan are put back in place. Hopefully a good radiator shop can fix that hole, other wise thing could get expensive. BTDT since just had my radiator re-cored.

I'm going to have to start doing that. What really gets me is I have no idea when/how I did it.

This tractor has had the engine out for a year now. Finally got it together and started refilling the fluids and I hear coolant start to drip...

Going to fill my radiator with water first to check for leaks as the guy that did the repair for me said I would probably need to snug up a few bolts.
