Smile tool for repair of radiator

Followup... yes the tool is found on amazon,and it works like a dream. you must pull a vacuum on the system to get rid of all the air in the cooling system then you open the valve that has a hose in the antifreeze and refill the system. cars and trucks too... u view# 550500 airlift-2 cooling system refiller.
