    Down time is an issue as well as cost.

    1. The top tank of my stock radiator is leaking from the front seam. I haven't over heated yet but things are running from normal second line from the bottom to the third from bottom line. I don't know if it's worth repairing (more down time at the repair shop and maybe more $ if it's bad) or just replace it (I can do this with my wrench truning buddy in a couple hours) with, I'm thinking CCOT's "quality 4 core heavy duty radiator" they have on sale now.

    1a. Assuming I go new is the above mentioned radiator any good? Is there better?

    2. My transfer case check/fill plug threads are buggered. The plug will not tighten/loosten. It's already got an oversize plug. What is the prefered repair?

    thank you for your patents, Todd a r

    Check out Performance radiator. There's lots of folks here who've bought them, including me, with great success.

    2 - oversized plug? Hmmm. Never heard of that. I believe it's a 14 mm nut on there. Is it really oversized? I mean, you know the hole was redrilled and tapped?

    Thank you for responding.

    I checked out performance radiator...same $ as ccot. ccot had all the hoses and a cap too. extra of course.

    Oh yes it's oversize, about 24mm if you cam believe that. I have located a used t-case housing w/ good threads, fill/check and drain plugs w/ washers and a 1 year warenty.

    $22 worth of gaskets from the dealership.

    Everything will be here by the end of the week or eatly next week.

    All told about $500 and a buddy of mine will help me turn wrench.

    Best, Todd a r
