  • Modern radiator core design

    There is a radiator manufacturer near me that advertises all types of radiator cores. While I don't need one now I thought I might take an A core down to them and see what they can offer the hobby. I don't think any of the "Model A" radiator guys sell just cores anymore and was wondering if there would be a market for just cores that you would use your tanks.

    I think Maine radiator sells cores, and recores originals. Brassworks advertises that they will recore your tanks.

          I talked to Maine a while back, they could do a core, but it would not mimic an original. When you're all said and done just do a Bergs.

              New radiator decision
              by mhsprecher
              I need to get a new radiator for my late 28 roadster. The good news is that there are options. The challenge is that there may be more than one good option. Here is what I have narrowed it down to:

              1. New Berg's radiator
              2. New Brassworks round tube radiator
              3. Have Bert's recore my old radiator

              Many people love Berg's radiators. They don't recore anymore,...

              Radiator straighening
              by JohnB15632
              I figured that there was something wrong with the radiator installation that prevented the hood from aligning correctly.

              Well, I backed my A out into the sunlight and wow, my radiator is catiumbus.

              So, how do I straighten the radiator?

              Radiator diagrams
              by BillLee/Chandler, TX
              Does anybody know where I can get the Ford drawings/blueprints for the '29 radiator? I am interested in the specification of the radiator frame dimensions, core placement, etc.

              Radiator neck measurement
              by DBaldwin
              Can I get someone who owns a 28-29 A to measure with a set of calipers the outside neck of their radiator and also count the threads per inch ? Thanks in advance!

              Both sides of the radiator brackets have come loose from the tank.

              Model A vs Model B radiator
              by ClaudeC
              These radiators seem to have identical inlets and outlets yet is the model B radiator different capacity/ greater heat exchange than a model A radiator?

              Original Radiator Question.....
              by conaway2
              I recently acquired this and just had it tested and repaired. Is this an original 30-31 radiator ? It’s quite heavy and the fins are flat and straight. The radiator shop told me it was an old one.

              thanks - Jim ...
