Question about 1984 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing

Open Question

I have a 1983 Honda goldwing and want to change antifreeze .How do I refill ? Can't remove rad cap as hits on frame so can't depress cap for last fraction of a turn . Do I have to remove dummy tank ( my manual does not show this ) Thinking if I loosen rad mounts may be able to raise rad enough to allow rad cap to clear frame enough to remove cap and add fluid. Tried pouring antifreeze down orerflow but air locks . Any suggestions.

Do you need to drop the motor in a Honda Goldwing to change out the alternator?


The mechanics unbolt the motor and at rotate it enough to get the rear cover off. By not completely pulling the motor out of the frame they save time on the install. Yes, the motor needs to be completely unbolted to get the clearance necessary to remove the rear cover and replace the alternator.

I want to change my antifreeze in my 2003 merc grand marque. Where is the drain plug on the radiator? Do I pour the new antifreeze into the overflow tank on top when I refill it?


look down at rad from top to get familiar with where i am talking about. now opposite side of the lower rad hose is where you want to go, two styles of rads, one has a wing nut type white plug, and other as 6 sided white plug, unthread with pliers or by hand loosen till desired flow is coming out. fill into reservior or overflow tank to half way and run engine til i reaches operating temperature and you has good heat out of heater, this makes sure all air is out of system, and this is complete ttop up to full and install cap
