Finally.....something on this project actually went smoother than expected. Just changed the radiator on the E36, took like 15 minutes. That's a brilliant design.
In order of plan today:
  • Run car with cooling system flush for a little while
  • Pull hoses to tstat and flush everything with tons of water
  • Hook it all back up and start the blue devil......
  • Let run for a few hours to see what happens
  • IF everything goes well.....flush the system again
  • Pull the new radiator and run tons of water through it
  • New tstat, housing gasket, reinstall fan and radiator
  • Pull mani, put heater hoses back the way they were, and replace all the gaskets on the intake path
  • New plugs
  • Compression test
  • Drive!!!

If it doesn't go well.......part out.
