  • 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.

      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?

      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.

      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?

      My 50 Cent Radiator Bargain at Gilmore
      by Tom Wesenberg
      About 20 years ago I bought a bad original 1928-9 radiator for $5, then in 1999 I bought a new Berg's 1928-9 round tube core at Hershey, just in case I ever needed one. The $5 bad radiator was missing one of the steel side brackets, so I couldn't put together a good radiator from what I had. At Gilmore I was able to buy the side brackets and core end plates for 50 cents, so now I can put together...
