ouch most expensive two hours wheeling I’ve ever spent

10:am installed new $250 radiator

11:am went wheeling

12:30pm clutch fan chewing on radiator

1:pm radiator removed at local shop to be welded

1:20pm stupid welder blew large hole into core instead of telling him and/or showing him how unhappy I was I just left, I’ll call tomorrow afternoon to see if he made any progress,

Note got brownie points from wife for not showing my ^ss at shop… B…

When radiators get hot they expand, as does most things. They are designed to expand forward, away from the engine and fan. Apparently this one was assembled wrong and it expanded rearward, into the fan, or it may have been put in backwards. :popcorn:

good news as of 5:pm this afternoon and $80 my radiator has been repaired

I'm ready to install it first thing in the morning and do a little testing

then Saturday head out around 6:an for Linton and redbird and a day of wheeling

yes the radiator is toast, but should make it thru the day without issues

we'll let the lawyer’s deal with everything else…

 

looking forward to seeing you all there!!!B… comanche.gif

on the plus side you did not kill a $5,000 contract because you did not check your email while getting a tranny for your MJ 300 miles away and end up loosing $900 per month as penalty...

 

al least i found a better paying job that i was going to take anyway..

 

my MJ is still under funded.. and not running..

Ya, I should be fine... I found another Comanche that dad and I might go buy... So I have so I have something to keep me busy on my new 2 days a week schedule. I think I needed some time off any way.. About a year and a half of work without a vacation. I was starting to get burned out..
