    Radiator pressure testers

    Where can I buy a good Radiator pressure tester that wont set me back a hundred dollars?
    Also need to know what adapter I will need to connect it to the RXP coolant tanks and where to find it also?

    Thanks!

    Yep!
    Don't know if its a leak (can't find it yet if so) or worst case a leaking head gasket just need the tools to check the simple stuff first!

    9 times out of 10 if you are losing coolant it IS the head gasket. Rare occasions it isn't. How is the oil? Milky or no? Even if it isn't milky, it could be that the HG is minimally blown.. Make sense?
