    Wounder, can't help but I hope you've got cake to keep your strength up. I'm currently in Armitage shanks collecting a trailer load of toilets :D

    A419 I think? Can't help either but is it too bad for Barr's Leaks/Radweld?

    Yep, my mistake, A419.

    Not sure, trying gorrilla glue to plug it as a get me down the road bodge.

    Waiting for a call back from Ridgeway 4x4 to see if they have one.

    Any local factors would be useful if anyone knows any that will be open for more than the next hour.

    I don't know if I can plug it enough to be driveable and get to Ridgeway by one before they close at 1. At least Ridgeway have one for £138+vat :eek:

    Thanks @boguing, Brian at Swindon 4x4 has one, also shutting up shop at 1 so I'm going to leave the glue as long as possible to go off and then cross my fingers.

    Leave the cap loose so that it doesn't pressurize and top up often.

    5 miles and 20 minutes through Swindon :confused: just topped up, still a small drip but not pouring out like it was. Lucky it's chilly and I noticed the heater blowing cold really.
    Going to give it 5mins and go for it I think.

    Get your engine warm and break an egg into the top of the rad!
    It's a very old 'get you home' solution that actually works!

    Never separated one when I've had to plug a rad!
    I suppose that it's possible to make a quick Creme Anglais whilst you're waiting for the drip to seal :p:p

    Made it to Swindon 4x4, new rad purchased and about to pull the old one out.

    Thanks for the assistance
