Replace Radiator Assembly (George F)

I found that my weak radiator (too often repaired) could be replaced exactly with the radiator used in Jaguar XJ5(V12) and XJ6’s.

(Presumably Interceptor Mk III’s. TECH).

Heater Hoses (W A K)

Gates’ Shape N Fit water hose (heater hoses) are supplied to retailers in 25 foot lengths, 1/2" ID is #28450, 5/8" ID is #28453 and 3/4" ID is #28456.

When installing this hose, ensure that the hose clamp is not riding on the stiffening wire or it will leak!
