Soo I was going to go a head and flush the radiator because as far as I know it hasn't been done in a while and check the airflow like suggested. Ive never cleaned my own radiator before but have done some studying and think I can handle it. I was looking at this

http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f37/19...dure-9652.html

I'm just wondering when I look at my radiator I don't see a cap right on it. There is a container with cap that has a hose that runs to the radiator, is this a surplus container or the only way into my radiator outside of the hose?
There are also several hoses at the bottom next to what looks like a drain plug. Do I remove all these hoses when I pour water into it?

Any knowledge is appreciated greatly, let me know if I'm saying anything funky or have the wrong idea!

The radiator cap is on the tank instead of the radiator, the coolant goes in there.

And given the amount of dust in there, I'd probably take a hose to it and wash it off

Thanks I thought so. Yeah its pretty dusty a good cleaning is in order for sure! Do I take off all the bottom hoses or just open up the drain valve?

Easy steps here. Before you open the drain valve, have buckets for the fluid

Maybe unrelated but I noticed this

The piece in the left picture fits and looks like the other ones that are attached to the belt. Not sure exactly what they are or for but I don't want to go ahead and screw it on. Don't know if this would be taken off for a reason.

Any idea?

There is a sticker with R134 on it. It's probably your A/C compressor.

Or figure out a way to fill a watertight 30 gallon barrel as it drains...
