Keeping my cool

After discovering a leak in the stock radiator this weekend, I bit the bullet and bought a new one. It’s now installed and the engine is filled and no leaks! Still need to find a belt for the PS pump and water pump so I can run it up to temp and fill the transmission and check for leaks.

New radiator installed.

 

AC Condenser and transmission cooler installed.

 

Once I snag the fittings, these will be replaced with -6 push-loc hose and AN fittings as well.

 

Filling the system and burping the air out.

 

For those who have never seen, or used one of these funnels, if you do any kind of work requiring you to often fill cooling systems, do yourself a favor and pick one of these up. They come with multiple adapters to fit just about any vehicle, and it makes burping and filling systems so much easier. You can find them at most places that sell automotive tools, or you can purchase it online, here it is on Amazon¬†http://www.amazon.com/Lisle-24610-Spill-Free-Funnel/dp/B001A4EAV0¬†for $25. I’ve used one of these for years and wouldn’t do it any other way.
