Radiator

Postby xrcr » Mon Dec 23, 2019 3:30 pm

Trying to get radiator off my 50. Seems to me they were not designed to come off easily. Soaking and heat is what I've been doing, just need to keep at it I reckon. I will definitely chase the threads once I can. If there is a secret remedy please share, but I figure it's persistence and patience.

Yes be patient. An impact at low setting...go both directions using penetrating oil often. Use a good quality socket so not to round the head of the bolt.

Once you have it off, you may want to use stainless bolts to reattach. TM Tractor sells kits and the gasket if you don't have a local source.

Be careful of some stainless bolts. It may seem like a good idea but the quality and strength may prove otherwise.
