    If you have an All Brass Radiator, why not have it rebuilt ? I've had good luck with that whenever I've had an issue. Not sure about these plastic tank units, but IIRC, Modine used to be a good name. Napa as well, which I think is a modine unit.


    Rock auto has them really cheap..... $120 -$175 depending on type of cooling you have on it....
