A poor joint around the"tank"needs re soldering.I can only do this with the radiator laying on it's front at 45 degrees otherwise water seeps from the joint interfering with the repair.Radiator blinds are operated by a thermostatic bellows of course,which I will remove first.

Whilst accessible, the drain valve has been coaxed into operation  with the help of some lubricant applied through the drain outlet(with the radiator inverted) and just enough leverage applied between the mechanism securing  pin and the housing rather than twisting the handle which has an inherent  degree of flex.

Softly softly...

I can't wait to see it again - better yet a run out to the Lenham Cafe which is on my "seek and enjoy" list.

Just down the road . Let me know when you are free. In fact a good spot for an occasional Kent gathering.In the meantime the car is ready for a road test now that the radiator is re-installed.One hose replaced also.Incidentally the bottom most hose clips need careful fitting as the worm drives are very close to the steering box and idler box arms.

Drain valve working! As with my Fulvia Zagato I shall move it back and forth as part of the maintenance program to try and  keep it that way.

Soldered
Richard, your solder picture is a bit disturbingly ugly - how far away were you standing when you threw the bucket of molten solder towards the rad?

A safe distance! Let us see if the repair is successful in stopping the leak.

Those spare brake discs will need skimming for fitting at a later date

4 discs now sent for machining.Whilst this is being done I am checking the fuel guage as I have been putting a few gallons in here and there with only a quarter  tank showing on the guage.The sender unit has been removed and it seems to be seized.The good news is that the tank is full to within two inches from the top! So lubrication and a new cork float to be fitted

Now lubricated and refitted,ready for testing once the missing earth wire is reinstated.Guage seems to be OK as connecting to earth results in a full scale deflection.

Guage now reading correctly.I am now thinking about the rear wheel bearings.Can someone tell me if these can  be removed with the axle on the car or is it a job for the bench? I have the spare axle to use as a pattern for making a suitable tool Also I need to know which oil filter is suitable.Advice welcome! Best regards richard

Rear brakes are the subject of a further question.I am wondering if the brake piston assemblies can be removed without complete removal of the transaxle.Is lowering it any use or is it best to take it out completely.Advice welcome once again.richard
