The big thing on the radiator is to make sure you get the right one (auto or manny). The OE originally came with a leveling screw so one radiator can be converted to either auto or manny, but the Behr we get AM doesn't have that...or didn't when I got it anyway.
Sorry to hijack the post but I'm changing out my radiator today
and the Nissens fitting instructions say to use silicone or a non acid grease
on the o-rings. What would that be?
Is Lithium acid free? Didn't know grease had acid in it.
