XLT Cooling System Troubles

Leaving the coolant pump there is "pressed in" tube that has has become loose. Once the coolant pressure builds the coolant blows by the tube. I tapped it a couple times with hammer and it fell out of the case. Nice Huh? Now that is engineering! I don't really understand why it isn't threaded.

So how is the best way to fix this? I keep thinking I should pull out the tap and die set and cut some threads so this can't ever happen again. Or is the answer some Loctite/Sleeve Lock.

If anyone has had this problem or can help recommend a fix I would appreciate it.

Why don't you hit it with your hammer again,maybe you didn't swing hard enough. Just make sure somthing runs for the big road trip.

Isn't the saying "get a bigger hammer"?

Re: XLT Cooling System Troubles

Had the same problem on a friends XCR600. I cleaned up the surfaces with some scotchbrite and and pressed the tube in place using a high temp locktite cylinder fluid. I also used an industrial type epoxy around the fix. So far it is holding. I agree it is a poor design.
