My 4/4 had a Mulfab radiator aluminium fitted a few years ago.
A fantastic bit of kit, but it failed to completely cure the slight coolant incontinence, that the car has always suffered.
Despite numerous attempts to solve the problem, there would usually be the odd drip, or two, on the garage floor.
As I attempted (again) to sort this out, I managed to strip the thread on one of the hose clips.
So, for the last few days, I’ve replaced the majority of accessible hose clips.
This included putting two clips on the bottom hose to radiator connection and any other hose, where this is possible.
This seems to take away the need to apply (for me) an uncomfortable amount of torque to the clips.

To date, not a single drop of coolant on the garage floor . So hopefully a success, but only time and a few long runs will confirm.

If the inlet pipes are not close to being round Bud, it's hard to get it leak free. I had endless trouble with one on my Roadster if you remember, until I made it rounder, and used a heavy duty clip, and some PTFE tape............

Agreed Dave on my old Spitfire in1980 and frozen to death that was the solution.

John, Dave: thanks for your responses.
cheers

I’ll keep you posted about the success, or otherwise.

The two clip method was one I first saw used on a pre war car, so decided to give it a try.
