Cyclone 300tdi

The cyclone breather is leaking and gross. I was going to remove it and clean it and see if I can get it to stop leaking.

What do I clean it with? The remove and replace seems pretty straight forward.

Thanks,
Alex

There is an o ring where they push into the head and thats the source of the leak. They get old and hard and shrink over time.

I have one of these and an aluminum coolant tank from Allisport. They are very high quality and look great.

What's the advantage? Heat displacement or just a fail safe coolant reservoir?

They will fit 200tdi.

It will be cheaper to buy from me as I supply all there products.

$149. Let me know if anyone is interested. Have header tanks coming in as well shortly.
Same price.

I went back and forth with the Allisport anti-sales dept before finding Randy and ordering from him. Not only supports a board member, but WAY better service.

Yes no prob. On any v8 radiator with or without fan setup. The v8 fan setup is a double fan by the way.

Pm on the way
