5k factory rad fixes blow large!

Finally replaced the rad in my 84 5k with a new from Best Price/KVR (local
for me, in Ottawa) after using the Factory Fix. FF is a upper hose fitting
and special adhesive from Kent. $45 for the pair, and get this! Said wiz-bang
adhesive (two part polyester, I think) got soft when heated by coolant! Also,
did NOT adhere to scuffed and cleaned rad tanks! BEWARE! This factory fix is
a sham! (Yeah, I'm a little anoyed)
BTW, Best Price had an new all metal rad for $210CDN, made in California,
fits fine, no leaks.

for your information,
