This reduces all " crud " to a fine dust which can be washed out. Crankcases and aluminium casting can also be treated in the same way but the temperature can affect any previous heat treatment. I have used the process on both block and cases with 100% results.

Local to me are Lenton Treatments of Leicester who are RR certified and always most willing to help I'm sure there must be others around the country.

I've not used Lenton myself but was admiring a block they had done for someone else last week and it looked a great job.

Just to finish the story - at least my part of it- I finally bit the bullet and had a new radiator core fitted by a local firm. The RP is now running normally

It's the only way.
