Next week the fourth radiator will be placed.
I only have few drops leaking. The expansion vase cap was already changed in february.

I have had no problem so far in the cooling department, but the car has not done many miles. My car was built in Feb 21, so I am wondering if my car is going to require a radiator change? How do I know?
If anyone can give me some idea then I can follow it up when the time comes for the brake fix. My situation is a bit messed up as the car is in the Netherlands! Up to now Louwman exclusive in Utrecht have given me excellent service (even replacing the entire windscreen wiper assembly due to problems with them) so I'm sure they will do everything required - I would just like to know what to expect. I suspect it will still be many weeks before my car is let loose again!!

It’s my understanding that the radiator mods, (Swirl pot, etc) are only being done to vehicles that have previously suffered a radiator leak.
As far as I know, and delighted to be corrected…if you don’t have a leak before the warranty expires, then you are on your own! So best to drive it as much as possible before then!


My Plus Four has had no radiator problems and I’ve been told that the swirl pot is going to be incorporated when mine is fixed next week.

I haven’t had an issue either with my PlusSix radiator but was also informed the mods would be done at the same time as the break master cylinder.

That’s great news if everyone’s cooling system is going to be uprated. However, I thought that those with rad problems were being taken to the factory but those without, were being taken to dealers.
So it leaves me wondering why?

Edit: Looking back through these postings, I found #747151 posted by John V6 which displayed an email from Krazy Horse.

“To clarify the situation, car’s that have not previously had a radiator issue will be rectified at KrazyHorse, cars that have had a radiator replaced previously will be rectified at Morgan. Morgan have arranged for a logistics company to collect all of the latter car’s directly and Krazyhorse will collect all of the others. It will be useful for us and Morgan if anyone has access issues for collection, to let us know so we can, between us and Morgan find the best way to collect the car’s. “

This implies to me that if your rad hasn’t yet leaked, you only get a swirl pot added by your dealer, and I guess this should ensure that it doesn’t leak in the future!
However, why do those who have already had a replacement rad need to go back to the factory for yet another one?
Am I wrong in my interpretation or is the email in error? If it said: those who have currently registered a leak that is not yet fixed, will go back to the factory: that would make more sense.

My plus 6 is due for collection by the dealer today, and apparently it’s a wing off job to fit the swirl pot? Or so I was told.
Not sure if they have the parts yet, apparently waiting delivery.
