Hey, couple questions please guys,
1. Anyone who has used an EB radiator in xf what is the solution for the old header tank hose connection on the side of the radiator? Does it get block and sealed up somehow? cause there is no way a hose can be connected to it cause of side radiator support panel almost hard up against it.
2. I guess the coolant tank on xg feeds into the heater hose somewhere? and if i say stuff it and buy an xg radiator do they have there own special top and bottom radiator support brackets that bolt up to existing location holes on xf.
cheers
any help appreciated, cant find an xg ute anywhere in a car yard to have a look.

Xg rad has no side pipe. Bottle is on the left near firewall special hose to plum it. Top & bottom mounts r different can b fitted bottom is a bit of stuffing around. Good Luck.

I had a look in the factory today and i have an XG R/H tank, rest of rad is stuffed. let me know if that would help, hard to get but not worth a fortune.

should be right now thanks mate, i unpicked the end tanks and cut off the pipe in question, also removed auto transmission cooler from inside and plugged the holes with some plastic threaded bolts and end caps and loctite sealer. Sure makes it easy to clean a radwith no end tanks!!
