    Did the water pump a couple months back, but hadn't addressed the leaks that caused the issue in the first place. Got around to that today new hoses and a 3 core radiator from mishimoto. Yes it was intended for a del sol, but the rad i had was a stock del sol radiator. Runs and idles better, doesn't piss coolant, and the fan runs itself now.

    Good thing I went silicone for the rad hoses, the lower misses the exhaust by about 3/16

    weird how the holes in the hose outlets are almost perfectly round. looks like rust contamination for sure.

    I made them round when I grinded then with the Dremel, had to get the rust out.

    Great photos of a good engine bay.
    I had some rubber fuel hoses running close to the exhaust lines (on a motorhome, not on my Escorst). I wapped some aluminum roofing around the exhaust pipes, with a layer of mineral fiber under it. It solved a problem I had been having with 'vapor lock' in hot weather.
