Coolant Pipe rusty

Post by andrewmole1 on Tue Feb 23, 2016 8:12 pm

Hi,

I have a 1998 993cc Daihatsu Hijet on of the metal coolant pipes that runs under the engine has become rusty, my local mechanic has welded it up twice now and I have put radweld in but its gone again and leaked all the water out. The mechanic has said its not worth trying to weld it up. I have scoured the internet looking for aa replacement but cant find any. I have even spoken to some one about getting on made but its too complex a pipe. Without getting this part as far as I can see the van will have to be broken down and scrapped

Sad Sad

Any advice ideas gratefully recieved

Cheers woodie have sent a photo, and yes there are some on eBay but I have either not received a reply or seem to be met with a strange reluctance for people to be bothered to remove the pipe at all!!

Cheers

Because a £15 rotten old pipe isn't worth anyone's time.

Well I am certainly not going to sell it for £15 for sure Matt. It was a right pig to get off. It is the only one I have found worth saving. Doubt if you can even buy it from Daihatsu. It is a double pipe. It is in pretty good nick too. Only light surface rust and not a pinhole in sight. Hmmmm. Price is steadily rising. Twisted Evil
