    The core of the original rad is 2" thick. Many modern cores are thinner. That's a starter for 10.

    Blow by

    Driving between 70 and 90 kph in fifth gear caused severe damage. The forth piston had a blow by and aluminum got stuck on the cylinder wall; it was not at all in a hilly area.

    Hello
    I installed a new TRW MC in my TF 6 months ago. Everything performed well until these past few days when the brakes began to feel "squishy" for no reason. I did a full inspection with wire wheel drums removed. No leaking. All wheel cylinders are fairly new. My wife and I did TWO very thorough bleeding procedures this weekend. No change. Of course, there is fluid in the MC.
    This is the...

    I wasn't worried about getting fuel stolen, a friend of mine had dirt or sand or something put into his tank with a non locking cap !
