Hello Surf owners:
I'm needing to get on top of this Surf to make it a bit more solid…so forgive if I am posting a lot for a newbie.
I've made a post regarding my radiator in the Workshop forum. If any of you know something about replacing radiators and suitable radiator options…please check out my post…I could use your advice. Cheers!
May You Thrive!!

Ok, I did a replacement with a guy in Maputo who builds them from scratch. He got me a 2 core copper and that thing keeps the temps down very well... I've had it installed since Dec 2015.

When we still has a Surf I also fitted a KZTE's aluminium radiator. Only had to move to holes, otherwise it fitted perfectly.

With everyone who fitted the KZTE radiator to the Surf, I'm going to tell my mechanic it's an option. He has a number of other Surf customers. Thanks all for this recommendation.
