Post by David Devon on Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:55 pm

I am after a metal cooling pipe which is about 30 cms long 2.5 cms dia. with the filling port coming out of the top towards the front of the pipe with a radiator cap on it.It lives directly under the passenger seat.Mine is corroded where the filler bit is joined onto the horizontal pipe.Any out there?

David, read this post:-

That guy walked into some kind of radiator place, and they made him a new one up from copper/brass etc.

You can order radiator cap plug hole assemblies on the internet, and you can buy pipe easily. All you need to do is find a nice guy who will solder/braze it together.

When you go looking for those pipes, most of them are on there way to rotten nowadays. You may find an OK one, then a year or two later its causing you problems. So maybe save yourself the heart ache and get one made up that will last you forever being brass or copper.
