    Radiator again... when first got b took radiator off n they put n vat for couple days cause was lil stopped up cause fluid was not circulating good.. n checked thermostat n it opened up on stove before water boil , did good for while ( haven't worked a lot with it maybe hour two here there) noticed small hole on inside toward motor n put bout half bottle of new stop leak . Seems even before then had fluid coming out overflow while warming up now after bout 15 minutes she blowing fluid pretty good out hole( really small) n overflow .. feels like not circulating.. should I replace thermostat n put stop leak to it again or take radiator off n get it patched?? Put 50/50 in it after got radiator back first time ... need some wisdom before aunt B gets best of me .. thanks

    I do not and would not use stop-leak. Take it to a radiator shop and have it cleaned and repaired properly. It is a sad sight to see a motor destroyed from overheating.

    You will need to take one or both nuts off of that coupling and post a photo of the coupling. it could be a flared fitting or one the requires a ferrule welded to the tube. Could be either.

    Nice old machine there phil4pres. I ran the 580's of that vintage back in the early 70's. Don't think yours is as the decals say though. You have the 580 CK there I think......the 580B's were the next in line after the 580 CK that is shown in the picture........likely someone labeled it incorrectly. If I remember correctly the 580 CK was rated at about 45 hp.
