found out its not the clamps or the hoses its the radiator.. my brand new, never been used radiator.. the clamps dont even make a difference between clamping and not clamping.
its not the water thats under the clamp, thats from me shifting clamps over and over again with the same result, no matter the size or clamping force, even when i released all the pressure from the clamp, its still leaking the same amount of water.
water is coming from the side golden fins. if you zoom in 300% you can see the stream of water coming out below the red marker
im happy i finally found it, but im ****ed, im ****ed at myself for not testing it the first day i got it, i fitted this radiator in september and did not bother filling it up cause i was doing all the rust work, finally this month im ready to start the car up and now this..
