    colourbox, I have a great condition radiator from my B210 if you need. it'll be a lot cheaper than buying a new one / rebuilding.

    I appreciate the offer but it's already been done. I'm actually picking him up today. Radiator shop was running behind. My mechanic gives me good deals. I built and maintain his websites :)

The verdict is in. Stanley's alternator was bad so it's been rebuilt. The radiator is leaking too.

    That's ok, we'll never consider Stanley a big drip.

    Ha! Well aside from the usual drips (oil) this is unacceptable. Still trying to find a radiator. Sigh.

Stanley's battery light was lowly lit so I had the battery checked. It was bad. Got a new one. Battery light is still lowly lit. Maybe there's a short somewhere? New mystery!

    I was reading the owner's manual and it said if the alternator and electrical system are functioning normally, but the electrical load is too heavy, the charge warning light may glow slightly. So I'm taking Stanley to my mechanic Monday to check the alternator and volt meter. Get this figured out.

    I had a similar chain of events happen on one of my 720's. After replacing the alt, still had the faint light. Turned out in my case to be too much corrosion in one of the fusible link sections at the battery terminal. Once replaced, no more light.

    Hmm interesting. My battery terminals are pretty clean but you can never tell. I'll double check that just in case. Thanks for the help guys!

Cracked my shin on the tow pull of my husband's truck. Feel like I broke my leg up to my teeth.

    Door panels are barely staying on anymore. New ones are needed. I expect the next time I open the door the panel will just fall off.
