Help -- Need Good Radiator Shop

Postby kajun » Mon Apr 26, 2010 2:05 pm

Folks:
Desperate here ! I need a good radiator shop somewhere in the Central U.S. This is for my IH 444. I know it's not a Cub but I figure one or more of you will know a trustworthy place.

Gene Lorang of Omaha Avenue Radiator , Omaha , Nebraska , figured in one or more antique tractor books and did wonderful work for me . He is now retired . I tried a local but I distrust them . After market is same cost as rebuild and I am looking for a good rebuilder. I would rather have rebuild than China.

Obliged

Kajun,

If you updated your profile to include your location it may help narrow things down. Video Doc has posted one he is happy with in Illinois, and I believe they ship back and forth, he should chime in.

Good luck,

David

David:

Thanks.

I got spoiled with Gene Lorang--- did business the old way. And I got spooked with the local that repeatedly didn't comply with his volunteered promises.

So I'm one week behind on my repair and this is a working tractor. I could have shipped to Lorang and it would be on its way back by now. Therefore do not mind shipping to anywhere in midwest or central U.S. for a quality repair.

I will update my profile and obliged x 2.

There's several cub members around the Baton Rouge area, perhaps they'll chime in. I'm satisfied with my local radiator shop, but I've only used them for automotive radiators.

Too bad you are pretty far away. I have a radiator for a 444 that is taking up space and do not need. For that matter I also have a gas engine for a 444 with next to no hours on it and a redone head that I also do not need. Good luck with the hunt.

Kajun,

There are quite a few members in your neck of the woods, I am sure some more will chime in with help and suggestions.
