I was less than impressed with the fit of my Brassworks radiator for my roadster, and even less with their response to those problems.

Yesterday the situation was reversed. On a 101 degree day, pushing into a headwind up a mile long 7% gradient, I expected to stop at the top and let her cool down before continuing my trip home. Not so, not even boiling, not even rumbling. In fact, I needed a drink more than my roadster.

Things are looking good.

My Brassworks radiator is over 25 years old and even when sitting at a draw bridge for 10 minutes in 95 degree weather in Florida I can barely get the mercury up to the normal line on my '10. Cooling has never been an issue. Unfortunately, the brass work is not even close to the original in quality and I have had a chronic problem with the lower cross piece coming unsoldered from the sides. When it first happened I thought the frame was spreading and splitting it but the dimensions are spot on and it has happened numerous times and each time the dimension has been correct. I think it is a design flaw but they may have corrected it since my radiator is 25 + years old.

Maybe thermosyphon works better in the southern hemisphere.

All of which raises an interesting question. If thermosyphen causes the hottest water to rise in the northern hemisphere, do you need a water pump on a T in the southern ?

Dick,
For many years now we Aussies and most of the Kiwis have been the brunt of hundreds of "down-under" jokes. We're mostly big enough to wear it all without grimacing, but.....
I want to put the record straight with these 2 maps.
They are both self explanatory and show that Australia isn't just a tiny island at the bottom of the world.
Tongue in cheek.....
Cheers,
Rob
