    Anyone ever have any luck stopping a leak on the tank of a radiator? It started leaking this morning when I fired it up to plow. It's seeping out of the joint where the tank is crimped into the aluminum tube section... Stop leak?/ Give the tabs a squeeze to try and tighten the seal??? The radiator is like brand new in this thing, all the stickers from the factory are stll on this thing!

    If it's from the year 2000, it's not brand new.

    Radiators aren't hard to replace, and relatively inexpensive.

    I'd go ahead and swap it out. Afternoon's worth of work at the most.
