So did the radiator explode, or did the cap blow off?

I had a guy here who bought a rad for his suby, installed it himself, then called us to complain that he was broke down and the cap failed.

So we take a cap and coolant and my tech and we drive to the parking lot he's limped to, only to find out that one of his hoses was rubbing the fan blade and rubbed through.

Then he's like "Well, I heard some noise after I installed it, but I didn't think it was important."

I'm probably going to be a while. I'm going to fabricate a housing for the Ebay fans out of aluminum sheet but that has a back seat to getting the engine pulled and rebuild started. I even ordered a metal brake for the occasion as opposed to using 2x4's to make the bends.
