Dent In Radiator..

Recommended Posts

Hey I have this dent in my right radiator where the hose clamps to, wandering thoughts on it. Think its fine? I'm just worried it'll restrict flow and cause to overheat...or do you think its fine?  Having issues with loading pics but here's one on ebay that is 100% identical to what mine looks like. I'll buy some new radiators when I have cash available but it'll be a few months.

does yours have a dent on the spigot like that one does? not sure if its just the pictures or not but it looks like that one also might be kinked, is yours kinked? if its not kinked then the dent in the spigot is the only one I would worry about.

Not kinked but the dent definitely narrows the flow. Just not sure if it is enough to make a difference or if it would cause any problems
