When I broke the plastic neck of the upper radiator, I used Devcon brand
cold weld compounds to form a nice ridge around the broken neck so the hose
clamp could grab the neck better, provided you have enough neck left to do
that.  It was meant to be a temporary solution, but it worked for a real
long time - still perfectly fine after 11 months until the radiator started
to leak around the vertical seam and I finally got a new radiator.  The same
thing happened to an electric after-run water pump, but this time, I didn't
buy a new one, and instead made a permanent repair by the same method.  That
was almost two years ago.  If anybody is interested in cheap, questionable
repair method, there is no reason why you shouldn't consider using that
famous product.

Does anyone know of where I can find a good write up on how to replace the
radiator?  I broke the connection on the top of the radiator off while i
replacing the auxiliary water pump for the Turbo this weekend.  There  is
enough to clamp on a water hose but I am not sure that is sufficient  enough
to hold.  So any help would be greatly appreciated.  Oh yes I  need to find
replacement top hose too the one with the funky T connection that  feeds the
Auxiliary water pump for the turbo.
