The PTFE-loaded version of WD40 is non-conductive and would be better for this job. From memory, I think the straw from the cannister will reach the motor b earing, so good luck.  :y

No worries, as all of the exciting England action were in the 12 seconds of highlights on TV later, which would have saved 90 odd minutes of your time to do something more interesting, like painting a wall & watching it dry. :P :P :P

Is there any point in watching more than one game?
I saw one once many years ago, and once you have seen one..... ::)

The radiator drain plug does have a rubber washer that can perish, but that doesn't answer why no leak when the engine is running.  ???

Last October I bought this from United Autoparts Distribution:-
 VAUXHALL OMEGA 2.5 2.6 3.0 3.2 1994-2003 AUTO/ MANUAL RADIATOR.
It was a perfect fit and cost 56.90 delivered.
You might consider buying one and asking Serek to fit it - unless he can offer a better price for the radiator?

Oh dear, I should read things properly - the 99p price was for ONE clip!
So sorry, Dean.  :-[ :-[ :-[

The link I gave you was for a box of various sizes, for 99p post free!
I am going to buy some for my "just in case" box.  :y

Without going out in the cold to look (still got man flu), I think the clip is a standard "Spire" clip, available on ebay for pennies?
Example: Item Number 192318095864

May god forgive you for that, Mr. Blue, because I certainly won't!  >:(

I hope that you got the dye for a sensible price, Dean. Do you have a UV torch, because an ordinary torch won't make the dye glow?
They are not cheap, either, but I could lend you mine if all else fails, using our wonderful posyal system.

I did find the leak eventually, yes, but not after going to EssexBigAl's place and he changed the radiator for me; there was a leak from the plastic casing all down under the top hose, not visible with the rad in situ.

Ye Gods, the prices now!
The company I used has ceased to trade and there is cheap dye, from the US, but with a 15 carriage charge and the UV torches are now silly money.
Your local aircon re-gassing centre may be able to help?

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

Thanks for the compliment, Dave, in thinking that I've got 20 minutes in me!
Although those thoughts about Joanne Whalley and the pot of cream got me quite hot enough      :-[

I had a similar problem with a mysterious coolant leak (look it up under that title) and I used some UV tracer dye from ebay, bundled with a UV torch. Not easy to see the glow in daylight and also, as in my case the leaking coolant was chucked around by the fanm, not easy to pinpoint even in the dark!
I hope that helps and if you want details of the vendor for those items, I'll try to look them up for you.

Pretty much the same as me, then - firstly Bow, then East Ham.
She knows that she is gorgeous, so no point in telling her so, but as an actress she would love to hear how great you think her performances were; e.g. in The New Avengers? We are all cheeky Cockneys in the East End!  ;D
