EK 360 Rad, possible damage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last night I installed my EK 360 rad and didn't notice that it had two different screw lengths and used the longer ones by accident. Before I finished putting all twelve screws in I noticed the different length of screws

I did screw a few of them in all the way and the ones that I did screw in all the way did go into the rad fins. I checked to see if I hit the core of the rad and they seem to have not damage it. I've been running a leak test since 1 AM this morning and have not noticed any leaks in my new system.

Basically did I damage my new rad or is it still safe to use?

Back the screws out then leak test. If it's not leaking then no harm done.

I have the screws in right now but just barely holding the rad in place since the smaller length screws also have a smaller head on them so they just slide through the screw holes on my 800D ><.

Going to go buy new screws or washers after I'm off work later.
I'll going to leave it testing for any leaks since this is for my full WC loop and I'd rather not take any chances with it.

Thank you for your input.

After you clear it for damage, hit up a hardware store for the right length screws. Pick up some plastic spacers as well.
