Rad Stuff

Oct 9, 2013 update on Roland444's 1971 Ford Pinto

Split a top radiator hose right at the start of summer. Not good for driving, so I replaced both hoses with new Gates items, and also found some elegant Oetiker stainless clamps to top it off. I also took the opportunity to relocate the radiator rearward by 2” using some coupling nuts between the rad and the core support. A small improvement in weight distribution, but every bit helps, right?
