Huge props to the awesome folks at Lenco. I ordered at 10am on Wednesday and it shipped same day. Got it yesterday. 24 hour heat exchanger
swap out. I ran out of coolant
so I need to go get more today to start it up.
I also checked clearance with standard pencil zincs and confirmed that the new Lenco does not bind or hit anywhere when installed. I did ask them to double check this when they built it. Interestingly they did say that Cupro-Nickel is overkill and he recommended just copper. We went back and forth "arguing" about which was a better option. Mine was stock made from copper. He said the Cupro is often touted as a better option by the internet
retailers and he only recommended it if I was a charter boat
or sucking up lots of sand. At the end of the day it was only $40 more and I decided to go for it. He did mention that cupro can tend to leak as it's an alloy and likely to do with brazing. Which does make sense but I like to overdo everything.
I did manage to get enough coolant
in to pressure test the system with my Stant. Was holding 15 psi for 20 and I left it overnight.
I was pleased they painted it but due to the rush to ship and some water in the box from testing, the paint
job wasn't great. No big deal and I need to touch up the paint
anyways on a few more parts
that got wet last during the water pump
