I noticed antifreeze leaking off the front end of my rig. Not the gen as it was coming from higher up. Pulled off a panel and found a hose clamp leaking. Must not have been the first leak as someone had tied a cloth around the hose just below the clamp to absorb the leak. Amazing what you find in a used rig!

Woof...nice little bus ya got there! Is that the used one, or did you pick that one up with the fragrance of new house? Either way, nice rig.

BIG UPDATE...

Ended up not being able to address leak from underneath; took to local Kenworth shop who pulled it out and checked all other cooling matrices. Got pics from shop super (trustworthy sort our school district has working higher level repairs on our bus fleet); bottom of the radiator looks like s--- on toast. It's a gonner. New aluminum radiator and labor...around $2k.

Ouch.

Ah, well...better 2K on a radiator replace than 40K on an engine replace...I guess...
