D6 radiator
« on: May 26, 2020, 07:32:35 PM »
This d6h has a leaking rubber between one of the radiator cores and the bottom tank. This has a folded/folding radiator where it has like 6 separate radiator cores that seal in the top and bottom tank with rubber. It looks like I need to left the top header tank some to lift the one radiator core. And also tilt the hard nose to do that. Any advice?

Typically I find these Cats come apart easiest in groups.  I would pull the whole nose cone and then remove the radiator from the group.

Itís also in the woods. So I donít want to make this a major tear down. You say groups? But they are individual. Only two bolts hold each one. But the top tank needs to be lifted about an inch to slid them out of there hole. Iím going to work on it today. I need it. Thanks

If anyone needs this info it is possible. Just loosen the top tank/header bolts and lift/pry it up. Just enough room to change one section at a time if u have two people. Iím waiting for parts now. And praying for dry ground😬
