General Tech Cory's single seat selfish buggy

Finally had a chance to try the windshield out today. When i was having the glass installed my radiator sprung a leak. It had been Wet looking in one spot and had finally had enough. It was leaking right where the tube goes into the tank. I took it to friend that repairs radiators and he said its a crappy spot to fix on an all aluminum radiator. On a brass one he can soak a bunch of solder on it but on aluminum its a gamble and on a plastic tank one he would just tank the tanks off and plug it off on inside. So i took it home and opted to cut the tanks open and block the tube that was leaking.

I figured it started leaking from the way i mounted it. On my two seat buggy and on austins buggy we welded flanges right to the tank and simply bolt the radiator on. On the two seater i opted to create a pinch style mount that i see regularly with buggys. I probably could of mounted it better but the way i did mount is what caused it to leak i think. I ended up remounting it flange style after repairing it. I also threw yet another trans cooler we had on the shelf while it was apart. They both seam to stay cool enough but i can overheat them if i want. The tranny seams to take longer to get hot and longer to get cool.


My radiator only cools 97.5% as good now.
