The 65 year old original radiator on my Climax Mk 1 has died. I have done some research and although it is very nearly a Morris Minor radiator there are some differences.
On Climax Turners both the top and bottom hoses are on the left. On BMC Turners and Morris Minors the top is on the right.
On the right at the top (on my Climax) is the water temp sender, and the bottom has a return to the heater.
The standard core for the Morris Minor is double rowed, on my Climax it is 4 rowed, it only just fits the top tank as it is much fatter than the Morris Minor radiator.
It seems Jack Turner had special radiators built for Climax Turners.
If these observations are confirmed it may be worth adding these details to the Technical Information 'spares list'
