hello junglejuice

On a good climb it will boil, on a soft climb on a hot day it will boil.

I end up stopping and let it idle until it cools. With all fans running it cools fairly quickly. The radiator is pretty much new so no obstructions there and I do not run an air con, however I am thinking of using the compressor for on board air. The trans cooler is new and clean as I do not run it through the radiator.

I am stumped.

I'd still be trying another radiator, preferably an Adrad #JEE9001.C/A2 with the extra tubes.

Hi Oli-dog

Did an ebay search and found the radiator I installed it is an FF Dynamics triple threat, item no.161185791684

Today I installed high density foam around the radiator and between the grill so all air has to be directed entirely through the radiator.

Willing to try anything.

hi there again, Don't use ultra blue sealant or silicon.
I only use gasket cement 3 pond or the Holden head stud sealant in a small can. Repco sell it put it is a little pricey but will last a lift time if stored properly. It's yellow 3 bond and the holden stuff a little lighter. Remember every time you boil the engine the scale will transfer into the rh radiator tank. Steam is the best cleaner.
