Pto and radiator

We just purchased a 1998 Magna on a Gillig chassis with a DT466 engine. It's in florida right now and I won't have axcess to it for a few more weeks. After reading the forms about the pto and radiators does this one fall in that category of needing a wet kit and radiator change?

I don't think so. The PTO problems didn't appear until the mid 2000's and the aluminun radiators didn't show up until around the same time.

This doesn't mean your radiator won't spring a leak, but it could happen to anyone at anytime.

I wouldn't worry about it until it starts to leak

X's 2 on Don's input. With a suggestion to review the documented (key word here is 'documented') maintenance records. If you don't see recent service of the cooling system, sure would not hurt to treat the new tide to a full service flush and new coolant. Check documentation on the hoses to, if not replaced within the last 10 years, not a bad idea to replace them. (Always better to do these things on your schedule, with your shop, as opposed to on the side of he road in a different state.)

Enjoy it when you are in it,
