Happend to look at the radiator when I was putting the alarm disc lock on and noticed that the radiator looked all blocked, but when running the temp is fine !
I can rig up a air cylinder from my my old department in the Fire service and give it a blast but don't want to damage anything, thoughts please.

If you have road crap, bugs ect. warm soapy water liberally applied to the front, let set for 10 or 15 minuets then flush out from the back side of the radiator. Avoid poking the fins and don't use a pressure washer to flush the radiator.

After you've cleaned off the crud & grime consider adding a mudflap.

I have the fine mesh in front of mine. It is a piece of window screen zip-tied to the plastic grille part in front. Doesn't need to be too elaborate, just thread it behind that grille and stretch it out. Mostly keeps itself in place. I fashioned a mud flap out of a plastic flower pot: Meldrew's idea ! It is attached by two strips of gorilla double-sided tape. Hasn't moved one bit in 3 years ! I put the screen material in my car too !

Jay.

Yes on the mesh, have it tucked in there on everything including the tractor.
