Default 1-800-RADIATOR. I fart in your general direction!!

damn pain in the butt!

so i am here to inform everyone that you should make sure you have everything you need before you start a job.

I went out at 9:00am today to do a SIMPLE radiator swap and only after putting the new unit in place did i realize that not only did the company not supply me with the necessary adapters for the oil cooler, but the sleeve they included for the coolant return made it impossible to use the OEM hose clamp. hip hip hooray for West End Auto ... two brass fittings and a hose clamp for $5.

So after getting yelled at by the wife for spending 4 hours on something I promised I would have done by breakfast, i learned my lesson. Make sure you have everything before you start ......

But at least it'* in and (so far) there are no leaks.
