Somewhere mid TR4 the crank hole disappeared. There is a common conception
that a "hole-less" radiator will help the cooling problems of the TR2-4
range - however, IMHO if the car is tuned and setup properly, you won't have
cooling problems. Or another way of saying it, if you have cooling problems
the lack of a hole won't do that much good - for very long. Something else
is causing the problem. I can't think when I ever used my crank, but it
is a conversation starter at the "cruise-in'' shows.

I saw the following and wondered, how would this fit in a '2 or a '3 there
is no crank access hole through the middle? Or am I crazy? Did the '4 have
a crank, I haven't seen a picture where it shows one.
Triumph Radiator fits TR2 TR3 TR4
I wasn't thinking of bidding I was just information and education gathering.
