I have a 2001 600 efi, I hit a stump and lost all my coolant out the bottom.
The skid plate stops right at the beginning of the bulkhead where the front heat exchanger is located. Can I weld up the rip in the seam or are there internal cores like a car radiator?

depends on how ripped up it is, if there is just a little hole then welding should be ok, but if its ripped up pretty bad change it

First try to repair it.  They are not easy too change!

If fact they are down right hard to change, The front rad is a part of the frame.  There are 112 steel rivets that hold the frame to the body.  I have heard of people welding in a new rad, could be done, but would not be easy.

Thanks for the feedback!
The Heat Exchanger is part of the bulkhead on this cat.
Its 500 bucks they say. I am going to have it welded before i tackle the alternative. I was able to reroute my lines and run fine when its cold out but too warm now.
Have a good one!
