Bryan & Son Radiator Repairs. West Kent/East Sussex.

Post by David Baldock » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:50 pm

Took an oil cooler in for pressure test. 'Phoned next afternoon for results & was told "no leaks". Don't know if that's good or bad as it means I may have a leak I can't see but Bryan thinks when the oil gets too hot (idling) it expands & exposes the leak then leak stops when oil cools.

Anyway, I asked on the 'phone "how much" & he said "a couple of quid". He's a very accommodating West Indian guy so I said "you can't buy a rum & coke with that" so I gave him a tenner when I got there & felt a bit mean with that as he was such a lovely bloke. I had a look around & was very impressed with what I saw so if that's your area I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

So pleased he's still around. He recored my radiator and repainted it probably 10 years ago now and did an excellent job.

His workshop can be a challenge to find from memory but as David says very knowledgeable, friendly and gets my recommendation as well.

I can't think why not Graham. I'll give them a call and let you know. Maybe over a pint with Geoff?
