well after last nights drama of having a lump of steel coming off the back of a ute and going under my car and bouncing up smashing the fan which bent it good cut all three belts plus ripping a huge hole in my radiator i had to do some bush mechanics to get it home again using zipties as a fan belt a rock as a hammer to straighten the fan the only thing i was really worried about was the gaping hole in my radiator with only a tube of liquid gasket stuff on board i filled the hole up with it and it actually worked well enough to get me home didn't think it would of worked but it did

Ha, good effort lol.

Make sure you replace it all properly and flush out the radiator and cooling system in case any of that gasket goo got in there.
