Can't see to solder anymore so I will coat the leak with epoxy, which type, brand is recommended?
I use J B Weld on them ,But any quality product thats A metal compatible type should work,Just check and see if its listed on the back for Radiators.
...............Moo , there is NO guarantee that it will Hold so why not take it to a Radiator shop and let them soldier up the hole ?? fordy..
...and don't close the radiator cap, that way it won't build up pressure and blow out the epoxy!
I consider epoxy a temporary fix, needs to get it soldered.
Used the JB Weld, so far so good. Budget is too tight to seek outside service people. So far it fine even after a 7 mile run.
Good deal Mitch.Ive had it work and had it not work,hope yours is the former.
OT,had a friend crack a block on a ford 460 in a motorhome.He drilled the ends of the crack,ground a V channel the length of the crack,cleaned the place with solvents and a torch,and put on JB weld.Lasted 2 years now and still holding,amazing,eh?
You guys ever tried a product called Marine tex? It is some good stuff.
we had to do the same thing with our radiator, with the jb weld. we are going to find out if it is going to hold soon. good luck with yours. :dance:
