    Aluminum Radiators

    As a preemptive strike, i purchased an eBay aluminum 4-core radiator as a backup. The OEM one in there is old but holding water. What are thoughts on theses? Obviously, i can’t tell anything internal, but the welds are actually impressive. I’ve seen worse welds on 3k mountain bikes. I have a...

    Measuring radiator cooling efficiency

    I have a 97 80 Series with FZ-1FE engine. I've had it for 13 years and I reckon it has always run a bit hot. Lately it doesn't seem all that hard to get the needle in the top half of the gauge. Eg. cruising at 100kph on highway with or without a load but especially if in "heavy" sand even if...

    What did you use for Mishimoto radiator transmission cooler adapter fittings for FJ62 OEM stock lines?

    Hello 'Mud - I'm about to swap out the old radiator to a Mishimoto aluminum radiator. This will be the second one I've done because the first made a great difference in temps and was a perfect fit. On the first, I used an external transmission cooler and bypassed the radiator cooler. On this...

    Looks like it's radiator time, no?

    I noticed a very small but near-constant stream of red coolant running from the passenger front yesterday after a short drive. Today I crawled under and found nothing leaking down below so inspected the top and the leak appears to be coming from the upper part of the radiator on that side, or...
