Wheeler Dealers, Edd China. Triumph TR6 Evans Waterless Engine Coolants Conversion
Wheeler Dealers, Edd China converted a Triumph TR6 to Evans Waterless
Engine Coolants. The episode gave a detailed account of all aspects of
conversion from the Prep Fluid flush to finish. The coolant Edd used was
our Classic Cool 180 which is particularly suitable for this era of car and
will eliminate the overheating problems that can be common with triumphs.
The new owner will also find the coolant won't cause corrosion or
cavitation and will extend the life of components such as the water pump.
Edd also demonstrated how the unique properties of the waterless coolant
prevent pressurisation of the cooling system by removing the radiator cap
whilst the vehicle was running. Don't try this with a water-based coolant!
A big thank you to Wheeler Dealers for using our product!

" As you can see, I delicately squeezed myself out of the car. Ed! Look
what I've bought. I bought a spitfire."
" It's the Tomy toys of smallest cars. This is the beginner's sports car.
If anyone can work on it, you can, sunshine. I would reckon."
" Well, it's pretty cool, but I am worried a little bit 'cause they're
quite renowned for rust. What tends to happen is they rust away and then
you saw a fracture and they've fallen off. So,"
" Don't you think I've done my checks, Edward?"
" Have you looked"
