    Change radiator

    Well, it's time. I've found a leak, maybe do to a stone or so... after 13 loyal years, the radiator must be changed.

    Re: Change radiator

    Are you going to change this yourself, like you did on your front hub/bearing assembly ?
    From what I have read, it is not too difficult to exchange, but I don't have first hand knowledge.

    And is this new radiator an all metal one or more like OEM ?

    Re: Change radiator

    Yes sir, no problem to change. I ordered the same OEM radiator at Euro4x4parts.com. They have almost every part for my rigs, my Suzuki Samurai an d the H3. The prices are very good to.
    The radiator is an very easy job to change, by 1 person and i'm sure you can do it.
    The hubs are normally no problem to get out....if they are not toooooo rusted like mine ..... it was a fight with the hammer and tons of rust blaster

    Found this for ya
