This is my 4 core that was pulled. I'm no expert but it looks like something is wrong with it.

It's only a year old. The good thing is the guy who owns the shop is very cool and said it has a 2 year warranty. The new genuine one is going in now and I will have this one redone. As for the genuine one, I watched them pull it from a genuine box and I have to say it looks like poop. I am sure it will be fine but it looks like it was painted with some ones balls.

I can take a dump in a box and mark it genuine if you like. I've got the time. But all you've got is a genuine piece of crap.

Some people swear by genuine. I was just surprised at how crappy this one looked cosmetically. You would think there would be some pride in work in the uk.

I would love for someone to tell me where we can get a good quality, aluminum radiator that will work for a stock application.

OK,
So my RRC has been giving me hell.
I have mad pressure in the system. Ive blown two coolant resevors.
When the truck is sitting and we warm it up, there does not seem to be much if any pressure building (runs fine with the cap off).
The thermostat seems to be opening as there is plenty of flow on the top hose.
The water pump is not leaking and sounds ok.
We did a co2 test and came up with nothing.
The bottom hose does not seem to be getting "flattened".
Runs downhill fine and sitting its fine, but when I try and drive it uphill, all hell breaks loose.
Any ideas?
I live in Maui, so parts are a challenge to say the least.
Thanks
mike

Does yours have 3 rows of head bolts or 2?


Later heads had the extra row deleted because it acted like a pivot and caused head gasket leaks ...

ps. I used to own a D. 413/500

Im just tweaking out. I don't know weather to get a radiator or if it is a head gasket issue.
Obviously, both costing a shitload of $$.
I plan to drive it uphill tomorrow morning and see what happens.
I've got the resivor cap only loosly on and I unplugged my AC pump, so the fans are running in front of the radiator (that seemed to help).
While sitting, the temps are Max 195 at the top of the radiator and block and about 160 below the radiator.
I really hope its not the head gasket, cause I love this truck

You new the cap on to pressurize the system ... Its more efficient at cooling when under the correct pressure.

Borrow a pressure tester from autozone and check the system pressurizes without leaking. Some of the fill plugs can leak when running an cause water loss.

You could change your own head gaskets. It's a 2 day job for an amateur mechanic.

Get your radiator cleaned out by a radiator shop first.

Ok. That's the plan. Thanks.
I drove it about 10miles this morning. Everything was ok until the last 2 miles uphill. When I arrived, coolant / steam were poaring out the seal in the resivor tank. WTrover!?

You mean opening late? I would imagine it should spill pressure before it blows out the tank like its done twice now? I'll try a new cap. I've been putting in on loosely so it doesn't blow out.
