The siphon for my coolant at the radiator cap is not working and I assume plugged up. I have removed the hose and ran a wire through but did not seem to get a place for it to come out. I took some photos and saw the very small hole on one of the pictures in the cap inside lip. I ran a wire in it and got maybe 3/8 of an inch in. Should the coolant flow with the cap off through this hole if it is above the opening? Is there a way to clean the path and is this hole the hole I should be working with. Thanks
Common problem. Unthread the brass elbow and try to clear out from that end.
I have used a wire about 1/16" inside a piece of 1/4" polyflow as a guide, with the wire chucked to a cordless drill. That way you can curve the thing a little to follow the factory hole. Beat a little flat on the tip of the wire and you have a paddle bit.
Ski, the elbow was blocked solid. got everything cleared out of it. Looking into the flange I had alot of stuff which I cleaned out. But now I am down to a substance that looks like solid solder. Could the previous owner had this all solder shut? maybe to seal a leak at the flange. I have been trying to clean out to match the hole on the inside of the flange. Should this hole go straight through?
