I have an older Diesel engine that I am having a problem

Customer Question

I have an older Diesel engine that I am having a problem with. Coolant keeps coming out from underneath the radiator cap. Here is what I have doneChanged the radiator capReplaced a crushed overflow line that ran from the neck to the overflow reservoirThe overflow bottle is also dry rotted at the cap so the seal is not air tightToday when I was driving the coolant is still weeping from underneath the cap AND the engine is running unusually cool say between 120-140. Am I looking at radiator replacement?
