The Radiator

Step 01

Fit the tab of Radiator Hose B over the recessed end of Radiator Hose A as shown, and secure them together with one (1) CP screw:

Step 02

Secure the loop end of Radiator Hose A to this location on the Radiator Top as shown (closest to the filler cap), with one (1) HP screw.

Once I installed this screw, I tried to rotate the Radiator Hose A a little to center it and it snapped right off. Don’t do that!

Step 03

Secure the loop end of Radiator Hose C to this location on the Radiator Top as shown, with one (1) QP screw:

Step 04

Position this Radiator Top assembly onto the top of the Radiator Housing as shown, aligning the long rounded mounting tabs on the inside. Then, secure the Radiator Top assembly to the Radiator Housing with two (2) EP screws:

  1. I still have not received phase 34 9RADIATOR TOP AND HOSES, as of this date. I have received all others
    up to phase 51 ELECTRICAL BOARD. I have repeatedly asked when I might receive #34 an the people , although very nice, do not seem to have a clue. This now has been going on for months since the middle of the year 2020. Does anyone have any further knowledge about this ?, or am I THE ONLY ONE?

    1. Eaglemoss was so-so with shipments before Covid, now it is worse. But, while they authorize payments on a schedule, they do not take the money unless something ships.
