Temp rad drain

Postby EZ » Sun Feb 21, 2016 11:24 am

Rigged up a temp drain as the rad has to come off again to repair the water pump seal.
Who knows I might even make something like this for a permanent fix.
Makes such a mess when the plug is first pulled.

Careful about what you put on there permanently. Nearly every time I see do-it-yourself extensions on those drains, they are in range to get whacked by the axle on uneven ground. Usually they only manage to break a piece of pipe, however . . .

Yes Jim I agree.
If I could keep the drain as short as possible, it could work. Then again, it will likely be a good long time between dumping the antifreeze. Surve was nice yesterday though when I opened the valve to drain it.

Do what I did. The axle won't hit it either, trust me.

I think I have seen this setup before, and I still really like this setup.
