While towing a small trailer the neck/radatior cap blew out of the resevior. Instant overheat. How hard is it to change the resevior? There is an odd fitting on the bottom. Any ideas.

Thanks

Tom

Are you talking about the overflow reservoir or the actually radatior ?

I am talking the resevoir. Changed it out yesterday. Easier than I would have thought possible. I pulled the air filter box out and everything was layed out before me. The odd fitting was for the low water sensor. Fit into a brass piece held in place with a large "C" clip. Took less than 45 minutes to do.

Thanks

Tom
