Your "A" depends on the water pump. Check that first and then see about the radiator. Also check your timing, though the way is sounds it's not that. IMHO
You mention in your original post that the radiator was "leaking like crazy" out the bottom. I think that is the issue - she leaked, got low and then boiled.
thanks guys. I'm going to tear it all down, methinks that I may have a loose connection and that it all leaked out too. Might have worked loose on the drive over
Let us know what you find.
So where's the start of this thread?? It seems to just start in the middle of things.
I accidentally posted in classifieds. I checked it out and the lower radiator inlet area had a few broken fins and drained the coolant completely. Had no idea it was even bad, no previous leaks. Also believe I fried the manifold and head gasket but didn't seize the engine...but it sure smells awful. That will be a weekend project...
Ah, OK! I do hope your engine's OK.
Brian - think you dodged a major bullet. Might be time for a new radiator. Berg's makes both T and A replacements and they're a really great product.
