If you are talking about a large CI radiator then take long lag bolts and find the studs in the wall...take a piece of thick metal and run the lags through the metal and clamp the radiator to the wall....
If you can. make up a couple of ell brackets to lag underneath also for more support...

if it is for baseboard radiation then you just run screws through the back panel into the studs to hold it fast...

On my 92 honda on my radiator i have grounding lines hanging and my car is overheating

you probably , did not bleed the radiator for proper circulation , and if you didn't notice also , you probably didn't plug your radiator cooling fan back up , because it starts up once your cars coolant becomes too hot , look into this , this could be your problem ...good luck !!

How to remove the radiator without removing the a/c evaporator/condensor, if possible.

Yes, take the radiator fan loose and remove it from engine compartment, then take radiator hoses and transmission lines loose, then take radiator brackets off, take off the a/c line bracket that attaches to radiator then move it towards driverside and you should get it out, the A/C condensor will be hanging there so be careful not to damage it in the process.

Where do the two hoses from the water reserve tank run in Jeep Grand Cherokee? One is the radiator..... There is another that is hanging and appears to be leaking water. When I drive, stop, and turn off...

The coolant reservoir has a line from the radiator,that is connected near the radiator cap,the other one hangs down for overflow,the radiator cap might be weak,so replace it with the one the vehicle calls for,if this does not stop then there is a problem,have it checked out,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Hey i have a 1990 geo storm thats alittle tore up their is a house haging down from from the radiator fan that has been severd could anyone tell me where this house is supposed to go its small not even 1/4...

Hmm if it is a mouse house you can just throw it in the garbage.
radiator fans are not supposed to have any hoses hanging from them. radiators sometimes have a overflow hose hanging from them and thats normal. Sometimes, most of the time, the over flow hose goes to an overflow container. some people throw those away and let the hose hang. Probably not a good idea.

1998 dodge overheats periodically without regard to distance driven weather conditions, etc. Heats very rapidly, rarely loses water so that doesn't appear to be the problem. Any ideas?

All about air fllow ...check all fans,check lower air dam which is critical for air to spoil to the radiator...lastly check for any foreign debris like paper or plastic covering the radiator.Those lower air dams will spoil air well,but **** up plastic bags just as easy.after I inspected these items I would begin to suspect a possible hanging thermostat as these can periodically hang open and cause rapid flow through radiator not giving the coolant a chance to exchange heat and flow staright back to the engine...good luck

Trying to replace radiator and can't get the old one pulled out.

My "standard" answer to this: If it's in your way, MOVE IT!!!! Find out what the radiator is hanging up on and either manuver around it or remove whatever is in the way!!!

Need to get the expansion tank out of bmw 323i 2000 cannot remove it any suggestions?

?? i think it's part of your radiator, it's all one piece.
if it's separate from the radiator it should be hanging there only with some screws or clips, the rest is just pressure.
the have some rubber grommets on the bottom that keep them tight

Over heating

Well sometimes its the small things that count and on my grand am it took several mechanics to figure out the overheating problem. Under the bumper and between the grill/radiator are rubber flaps that hang down (to keep dirt from flying up from the road). Sometimes the plastic tabs don't hold them on or they rip from deteriating and hang down in front of your radiator. There was a small tiny piece of it hanging in front of my radiator causing it to overheat very badly. Took like 5 mechanics to notice this. No joke but i have replaced the seals and all but in the end it turned out being this problem. Very odd. You might wanna check into it. Look for anything that might be covering up the air circulation in front of the radiator and look very good because several people havnt noticed it. Wish i would have knew this before i started replacing gaskets and stuff.
