No fair ... you used a cart/lift.
I pulled one rad in our 8 in and out (I think) 3 times.† Got a free one to replace a leaker ... it leaked worse than the first one.
Replaced it with another 'free' rad ... it leaked ... not as bad as #2, but still leaked.
What's that -- 3rd times a charm?
Borrowed one from MC-8 #1 and put it in #2.† Should have just done that from the get go.† Dang ... I had no cart, just lift the darn thing and get her in there!
Gotta put a scissor lift cart on Santa's list
Out with the old and In with the new.....
That lift cart is the best money that I have spent at Harbor Freight. It handles up to 1000 lbs, I have used it as a rolling table,
man-hoist ( stand on it for a little extra tallness (wife jacks it up so I can reach into the blower bay)), Lifts 8 golf cart batteries
up level to bay floor. and makes a nice work table for just about anything heavy.
The handle folds down and the whole thing will fit in a bay too, Extra nice for jockying generators into bay locations too.
On the Radiator thing, I had several offered to me (used) but 3 of them failed pressure tests before I started. So I ordered new
cores from National Chicago Radiator for $394 each. Much easier than the trial and error approach. My mistake was that I didn't
change both at the same exact time. I waited and then had to rush to change the right side when it failed 2 weeks later
on the road.
A used radiator may get you home, But new ones are the only sure cure. I don't know which is worse, The aggravation to change them or the expense of $12 a gallon antifreeze " Shell Rotella ELC " going on the ground ( red stuff ). It's all such a painfully expensive lesson.
