There's a pin sized hole in the side tank peice on the radiator in the EBII Fairy. New rads seem to be $125 to $170ish. Just wondering is it possible to pull the radiator out and take it to a radiator shop get it flushed and cleaned and the side part replaced, or not much more just to get a new radiator (no radiator shops are open for a few days so figured someone here might know).

yeah passengers side - hole is somewhere around where the it's moulded for the thermo fans to mount on (not that the EB has thermos but). Easy enough to DIY replace it?

There is one under the tank, that stops it leaking, when you pull it off, you will see it.

Cool chears.

I'll check at work tomorrow for a listing for the new tank. Otherwise I'll make some calls Tuesday.
