We want to help you clean your tractor radiator fins.
If you do not feel that you understand these steps, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic.
Time to get started.
CAUTION: Beware of flying objects. Always wear eye protection when servicing the engine and when using compressed air or high-pressure water. Dust, flying debris, compressed air, pressurized water, or steam may injure your eyes.
Failure to comply may result in minor or moderate injury.
Dirt and dust adhering to the radiator fins reduce the cooling performance, causing overheating. Make it a rule to check the radiator fins daily and clean as needed.
Note that a typical radiator is shown in Figure 5-9 for illustrative purposes only.
- Blow off dirt and dust from fins and radiator with 8 psi (0.19 MPa; 2 kgf/ cm2 or less of compressed air (Figure 5-9, (1)). Be careful not to damage the fins with the compressed air.
- If there is a large amount of contamination on the fins, apply detergent, thoroughly clean, and rinse with tap water.
NOTICE: Never use high-pressure water or compressed air at greater than 28 psi (193 kPa; 19 686 mmAq)or a wire brush to clean the radiator fins. Radiator fins damage easily.
