I am going to bypass the radiator and use the towing cooler, plus do a trans service tomorrow night.
Will see how the trans is after that.

I had that happen in my BA, got a new radiator, overflow tank and flush the trans fluid twice. I got 6 months out of my trans before it gave up

Definatly do that as your radiator is OLD hence why the core split...........

Radiators should be changed every 100,000 kms or 5yrs espeically in ford falcons
