Burst Radiator.

Disaster struck earlier today when the radiator burst and left my mate and I stranded! Luckily the AA were not far away but the result was an undignified, towed, return to home behind the van.
The rad had a new core some time ago and this time it looks to have split the vertical plastic tank on the offside. I have not removed the rad yet but there is a clear hole and split there.
There was no sign of the temperature gauge rising before the event
My early searches on the internet for a replacement rad are not encouraging Sad Sad

Oh dear. Not a pleasant experience. I well remembering that when I had a leaking rad on my Scorpio the temperature gauge never moved. Never trusted it after that. Became a little more paranoid.
I am sure you will find a replacement. even its one off a Granada which I seem to recall fits!

I had two Rads built for my 24 valve Scorps some time ago by a Rad Co. in Wolverhampton, they did a grand job. However I just can't find the info on them on here. I am sure I reported it somewhereHuh?.

Thanks to Scorpio Mike I have now ordered the Rad. he found and it should be here in the week.  
 
Had a chat with Tompion earlier so hopefully we may be able to sort the longstanding fan issue soon.
 
Thanks to all for your advice. Smiley
