Subject: Re: Using Bar's Leaks in 9000 cooling system


If I remember correctly, the instructions say not to pour Bars Leaks into the header tank. This gives you a slight problem on the 9000 (at least it does in mine) as there is no other natural way in (i.e. no radiator cap). I guess you have to remove a hose or something?
