7120 oil cooler hoses


Recommended Posts

Take em out one at a time they are tight but will come out........Maybe loosen radiator mounting bolt on bottom and wedge it up a tad. DO NOT try prying up on bottom of radiator. The foam sealing pad that goes under rad is not the best idea as it traps moisture and rusts out bottom tank. A sealing strip is ok, but not a pad that covers entire bottom of rad tank. Don't ask how I know this last tid bit of info.......

I can confirm this bit of idiocy . . . foam pad + a steel lower tank . . . what were they thinking??!

Are you meaning the radiator mounting stud? Can I get to that without pulling radiator mounting plate? I replaced radiator a few years back and remember it wasn't fun

We have extracted them without removal or loosening of the radiator, one at a time. We replaced them on all our boxcars as they dry rotted and the steel braid rusted through enough to blow on one of these. It was the merger tractor at the moment and I took the side panel off and added a hose externally to get the cutting of hay finished

Yup, wasnt too bad. Cleaned it up with pressure washer and removed grill and didn't take long to swap them out. I just left the foam out in that corner under the radiator
