          Got chance to work on the radiator upgrade ...

          Removed the stock radiator







          The all aluminum aftermarket radiator is bigger than the stock one

            Transferred the cooling fan



            Moji this the long reach hose clamp you were asking .... when it's locked you can easily move the clamp

            the top clamp is easy enough



            you'll appreciate the clamp pliers when space gets constricted ... like for the bottom hose clamp



            pliers is in clamp grip lock position so you can easily install the clamp into position

              The fastest and easiest way to bleed the engine coolant system out of air pockets





              just install the funnel and add coolant ... rev lock the engine to 2K and when it gets hot enough to open the thermostat then air pockets will automatically be bled

                There's one hiccup. The Spoon Sports radiator cap does not fit the new aluminum radiator ...... funny but the Spoon Cap cost a bit more than half the radiator price. Will keep it ... maybe when I have an aluminum Tiig welder I'll replace the radiator mouth to one that fits the spoon cap.



                It was not necessary to remove the front bumper to replace the radiator .... we just took the chance to replace one defective air horn during the wip

                    Yes those are Channellocks . The top most one which is a bit darker blue is a Klein wire stripper.

                        Yes go for it. I got the tools mostly one at a time whenever budget permits. However I stay away from junk tools so no need to repeat the same purchase.

                            Look at this ..... we better think twice before re threading spark plug holes unless the correct tool is available.

                            According to Machinery's Handbook (24th ed pg 1650), there are four standard SAE spark plug threads, all metric: M18 x 1.5; M14 x 1.25; M12 x 1.25; and M10 x 1.0

                            The threads for spark plugs have a special tolerance, different from a standard metric tap. Don't go order a metric tap with matching thread specifications, specify a spark plug tap.

                            If you scroll down, you'll find spark plug tap's
                            http://www.besly.com/stdtaps.htm

                            I'll be needing one of this for my car. Just in case ... you'll never know or just simply to clean threads before installing new plugs.

                              Eventually all tools break down ... like my Speedaire air tool automatic lubricator .. it developed a leak at the adjustment cap. A bit expensive to replace in full ... a hassle to order just the part .... I'll try repairs first.



                              I always stock up on JB Weld products just for these unexpected repairs ... since I'm dealing with lubricants I'll be using Waterweld ... if it was metal then it would be JB Steelstik ...



                              I'll grind the putty a bit once it hardens.




                              this is how it goes in the lubricator .. running air tools at 110 psi had taken it's toll on the oiler ...
