Repalcing hoses on 'oil coolant system'
« on: January 04, 2020, 12:34:40 PM »
Hi all,
         Some of my hoses of what I thought were part of the engine coolant system were degraded, so I went to change them and found that they were part of a different cooling system.
I think it is the oil coolant system but I cannot find any mention of this system within any of the army or landrover manuals.
 Can anyone tell me what this system is and where I can find info for fill points etc for these. As when I did the hoses all the water (no coolant visible) drained out and I must refill somewhere.
I have put photo of the radiator hose that was degrading, it slides in past the top alternator and joins onto metal pipe system.
 :o :o :o :o

Hi Mate,

It is part of your coolant system, there are two similar sized rubber/steel pipes that travel rearward of your engine to the heat core. From memory there is a VH commodore heater hose that can be used to eliminate the steel pipe/s all together. (supercheap)
Some heater cores had straight pipe outlets, some 90 degree down outlets.
The fill point can be both the brass plug on top of the thermostat housing and or the radiator reservoir cap.
