Farmall H Radiator Clean Out/Flush

Postby Stanton » Mon Mar 03, 2014 6:48 pm

Have the radiator off and it has several years accumulation of dirt, dried grease and mire along the bottom and throughout some of the fins. The inside isn't too clean either.

What process would you recommend to clean it up? Take it to a radiator shop for cleaning? Vinegar/water bath?

Let me know your opinions...

I would clean the radiator myself. Inexpensive. Worse that can happen is the cleaning uncovers leaks.

Exterior; Simple Green, dish washing soap and water, hose off. CLR or washing soda for interior.
I have an excuse. CRS.
