damaged my Rad

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, just wondering,
A few days ago I was messing with my system, and while remounting a fan on my rad, I noticed that the screw in the fan was not lined up with the hole on the rad, and really I had been screwing it into the fins. The thick lines that run horizontally through the rad are still fine, but the really tiny flimsy fins are bent and ripped. There is no leak, but just wondering if this would affect performance much, and if this is something I should worry about

i wouldnt worry about the fins just so you didnt damage the tubes in radiator

if you are really worried get this:

My brother used it to repair his car radiator and its been working great. It was a 5 inch cut into the rad. This is some good stuff.

If you didn't puncture the tubing, everything should be good to go, no need to do anything. The J-B Weld should be used only if there's a leak.
