    Default Radiator Help

    Hey guys

    got a problem with my radiator. the place where someone drilled (the person who put the ae86 radiator in it, not me) through it to put a thermo fan on it has ruptured a vein. the leek isnt overly big but is bad for this weather.
    its a ke70 with a 4age, but has the sprinter rad, with mounts that are welded to the chassis.

    what i want to knnow is, what can i do about this in terms of places in adelaide who can fix this or replace this? what are my options
    any help would be appreciated.

    cheers

    my mate went to Eastside automotive in Somerton Park for his leaks and blockage.

    said they were really good.

    If the hole is small, shoot down to your local supershit auto and get some radiator repair shit. I'm not sure what its called but it is a 2 part grey epoxy and works a treat to patch small rad holes or leaks. I had the same issue with my fan cutting a hole in my rad. Patched it up and never had an issue since.

    And mount your fans properly next time.
