Dropped ToMM© off for my rad to be fitted.... & they will 'squeeze me in' for the rear brake pipe replacement/bleed.

Fuelly pipes (not pressurised, as Carb = draw/return) will be replaced as reqd.

Strange Fact!.....

 

.. this is an 'automatic' spec rad, for the E9x Corolla - and came with two brass connectors for the Trans Cooling pipes [discarded].

 

It is described as 'compatible' with the T171 Carina II BUT is about 2" narrower  :? ...

 

The front box/hole in the car is completely filled with this width of rad.... therefore some of the 'factory' rad must have been shrouded in any case....

 

I'm well chuffed for £18  :-P  Eh?

I noticed (as I was under the car at the exhaust place) that a good streak of engine oil is smeared over the subframe... It is coming down the front, from the Cambox Cover seal [TADTS].

 

I popped £13 for this lot....

... I have a bit of Blue Hylomar non setting in my toolbox but thought A BIG TUBE wouldn't go amiss  :-P

 

Not the most demanding of 'spannering tasks' so I will D-I-Y
