    How did you attach your fans?

    Are you saying the rad is bend or bowing down, I can't tell from the picture.

    yes the radiator has a covex shape at the bottom (nearest engine), and is about 1/4" lower in the middle then the front aux radiator.

    I did not mount the fans this is a pic from looking at the car after removal of the plastic shield, I am at a garage on the way home, cannot continue, do not want to take the chance. So is the rad suppose to be square or convex at the bottom, the aux rad is square the main is convex at the bottom

    What I am saying is are the fans mounted to the rad or to the frame of the rad?

    I love you but your killing me!

    I am thinking if the fans were mounted to the rad core they may be too heavy and bent the core down, the OEM fans are mounted to the frame.

    If it has not failed then I would get it home and look more.


    Now I see better, not sure I will look in the parts book and see if it should be roundish.

    My Transmission coolant tubes as you can see are rotten. Can not risk another 1600 km home so tomorrow we pull off the front end and remove aux.transmission and main rads

    If it's the transmission cooler lines you're worried about, replace the rusty part with decent hydraulic rubber line and good clamps. There's no significant pressure involved. Then you can get home, and drive for many KMs more without worry.

    AS stated above, don't use heater hose as EPDM does not play well with ATF.
