Thanks! Should I do this before or after (or both I guess) I replace the hoses?Pressurize the system to 15psi and let it sit for an hour or two. Hopefully it still hold the pressure.
Thanks for following up, Joeseph! I had actually just gotten to work on it in the past few days - here's the scoop.Curious how it worked out.
I'll take a look at that while I'm poking around in there - thanks!I then realized i had installed the overflow bottle backwards, this would pinch the over flow tube from the bottle to the radiator shut causing the collapsed hose.
I’m not sure.Unless I’m misunderstanding what I’m looking at, that adapter doesn’t look “expanded”, it looks cracked and broken. That would explain the leaking.
