Which radiator did you eventually go for. The 44 one recommended by Doc Gollum or the 80 Vaux?
Please let us know if there were any issues fitting it?
Thanks,

Went with the 44 one recommended by Doc Gollum. Will be fitting it towards the end of this week if all goes well. Will let you know how the fitting goes.

What is the torque settings for the radiator fan switch's?

Is it a 29mm or 30mm spanner size? I don't have one so will have to order one.

Will I have to renew the dowty washers?

Thanks

30mm iirc, and switches should come with new washers ;)

I wouldn't buy a 30mm spanner to just do one job, unless it was very cheap. I'd buy a gland pliers for a one off job or maybe a cheapo adjustable spanner.

There are a couple of jobs on the Omega which warrant a larger offset ring spanner ;)

Not sure if the switches fit through one though... Honestly can't remember  :-[

Fit them with the radiator out and space isn't a concern, so a large adjustable would suffice  :y

Seems to me that the spanner flats are 29mm.

The tightening  torque will depend on the type of washer that being used, supplied with the switch. A Dowty will require less torque than a crushed aluminium type. And some washers might be fibre.

that. There's not much space to get tools to the switches when the radiator is fitted.


Bear in mine you're screwing them into a plastic housing, and the sealing is done by a crushable washer so they need little more than nipping up. Water pump pliers will do that.....
