If it doesn't fix the leak at least your jeep will smell better

I miss the days of the all metal brass OEM radiators (no plastic)  Am I the only one old enough that remembers when you could bring your leaking radiator to a shop and have it re-cored or brazed to make it like brand new again?

I remember having something like that done to the radiator of my BMW 1600 when I was in high school. If I remember correctly I had it re-cored.  When I get home I'm going to go take a look. First day I drove it on my 18th birthday a hose split and the first real work on it I did was replacing most of the cooling system.

That's definitely a dying art! I know one guy in Hamden that still does it.

If you can, take your fan shroud off and check under it for dried drippings. Also check around both hoses going to radiator and make sure they are good and tight. Gotta find out where it’s leaking before you start replacing things. Could just need a new hose or hose clamp.... 

Make sure you check around the thermostat housing for leaks too

Gentlemen and perhaps ladies,

I want to thank you for your positive thoughts. I am Matthew House of COREC and everything you have said here is true. We knew going into this we would have a some problems but if that is really going to deter anyone from doing what needs to be done, how would we ever get anywhere? I'm going to bring up something that we don't want everyone to see or hear. First of all, the DEEP has thrown out their gauntlet called the "ATV Plan" since we began working on phase 2 of trail assessment on 16,000 acres. No, it doesn't have anything to do with 4x4's but it can easy be rewritten to do that by the DEEP. The fact that this plan is not law nor is it policy and just a set of guidelines lends us well to fight it but the question is how do we do that?.. Since the DEEP won't modify or rewrite the ATV plan we are suspecting we will be starting from the top down. This begins with legislature. Since the DEEP takes their "orders" from the laws generated in the LoB in Hartford then that's where we need to be. the problem is that as an organization, we need to come up with a plan to do this and this is why we need your help, clubs and individuals alike. Sure, I can go to the capitol and shake my fist all I want but if we don't have numbers to back that up like the conservancy groups do, it's a losing ticket. This is why we need membership and the reason why we aren't just some FB group that thinks they're a real organization like I see of many pages out there. If we don't have documented numbers, it's going to be a loosing battle. We need to act as a group, as one entity, as many other organizations have done elsewhere in the country. When is the last time you witnessed a law passed that actually benefited the real off roading community? I won't hold my breath... We've been getting hammered by politicians making laws for something they have no clue how to control, regulate or even make profitable to the state. This is the reason why we are in this pickle. Not only that but the bad press is killing us like what was mentioned of the beer can throwing, trash dumping folks that really have nothing to do with us, we get the blame. But.. I digress. We are trying our hardest to build this thing called COREC and I have to say it's easily the hardest thing I have ever done. The raw amount of planning that goes into what seems to be the simplest of things is just astonishing. We have to be careful that every move that we make now, only affects us positively in the future or at least that is what we attempt to do every time but, we're not perfect and there is no "how-to" book for this. I want to make sure you all know that we are busting or tails to create COREC and make it to an effective organization. The more planning we do now, the easier things will be down the road. Thank you for reading my book..  :rolleyes:

The nut & bolt method works much quicker if you use an impact gun instead of a ratchet  :wink:
