Rad leaking

Fri Jun 08, 2012 6:43 pm

Just bought a 154 and rad is leaking. Looking like a needle in a hay field to find a replacement. Is there any comparable rad that can shoe horn in or is re-core my only bet? Im ready to give JB Weld a try. $415 for re-core, little steep.

Messick's shows a new radiator for $668. :shock: If you have a shop nearby that can recore, they may be able to solder the leak shut unless that radiator is already shot.

If the leak is in just one tube, block it off top and bottom.

Hamilton Bob may have some, for small pinpoint leaks you may try stop leak. Do not use the silicate type.
