      Thanks for that sgtwal
      Would that have been a US Army publication, what other temporary repairs or tricks does it mention? I've a British Army 1943 Improvised field repairs manual that says something similar including pouring in sawdust, pea flour or pea soup and kneading soap or chewing gum into small leaks including wooden plugs and cloth into larger holes. Does anyone have a clear up close picture of an M4A2 radiator? The images in my manual of the rad are not very detailed.

      The old field manual on vehicle operations listed a number of field expedient repairs for minor leaks. These included using a pair of pliers to pinch off leaking coolant tubes and adding crumbled tobacco to the coolant to block seam leaks.
