Radiator leak

Postby pokitisme » Fri Aug 18, 2023 12:59 am

Okay so I've got two farmalls both have radiator leaks both about mid level. Not big gaping holes as far as I can tell but radiator leaks. So I wonder if any of this bars or radiator repair stuff that you buy at Walmart would work. Of course it's subjective. I've researched a bit and from what I know I have to take off the steering wheel shaft to take the whole damn thing apart. That seems rather annoying to me and I was thinking of cutting a hole at the bottom of the steering wheel Hood part just so I could slip the hood off and on. Anyway I'm wondering if you guys have had any experience with the bars stuff.

Have used several brands of radiator stop leak in the past. My experience is that they work for a period of time, long enough to get a new radiator.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yeah I found a guy that will repair it for $125. Still waiting on him LOL. But he's replacing the downspout fixing all the fins and going to repair the damage as well. Which turns out to have been a rather large hole
