    No drain plug.only way to do that is engine or box out and physically drain it. Or just do a couple of fluid changes extra after running engine Up to temp .if fluid was black or dark brown its a good idea.if old fluid was still red / orange then probably not necessary

    No No Jess, I chose the high postage so that I would get it quicker, in fact it is due today. Leaving the club is over the way I am getting treated after 12 years, I will try again to get that sorted though, this club is far to handy to just throw away.

    A few days away on a short break has given me some time to think things over, particularly with regards to the radiator (leak). I decided this morning to investigate a bit deeper and see if I could find that tiny leak. My plan was to use two of these rubber bungs: I think I had them from many moons ago as part of a wine making kit or something - demijohn bungs? So I stuffed those in top and bottom and filled the rad up with water - then waited... After about 5-10 minutes I spotted this damp patch appearing on the core. To get a better look I removed all of the cooling fins in that area - most of them were shot to bits anyway to be honest. Lets call it weight saving And there seemed to be what I convinced myself a tiny hole about in line on one side of the 'flat' just about in line the point of my finger nail is. By the way, at this point I had moved the rad onto its side - in case anyone says "but water doesn't run uphill" So off I went to find some weapons: A few minutes later and we have this: I appreciate that the some of cooling fins are knackered, but hey, if it holds water, I cant see that being a massive problem... So now I am off outside again to refit the rubber bungs and see if it has sealed.
