Re: XJ radiators, a review.

They uses a black fiber washer similar to a regular flat metal washer less than 1/8 inch thick.
Use something that is non porous and will conform easily,...some silicone will also work. A thin O ring will also work.

Re: XJ radiators, a review.

I used right stuff silicone for that plug. Won't get a better seal than that. When you use it on an oil pan or valve cover you have to have a chisel to get it back off.

Re: XJ radiators, a review.

My plan right now, assuming I get one that fits, is to use an aluminum compression washer with Right Stuff silicon.

Provided the shippers do their job according to the tracking numbers I will get to work on this Saturday.
