Boy am i pissed off right now. just heard from my dad that the company i bought the radiator from doesnt have any more (the ebay ad i bought it from said "more than 10 available"), and they want to sell me a 2 row one for the same money. i told him forget it. i think i can fix the one i have. i just have to bend it back into shape, and it should seal fine since the actual part that seals is inside the filler neck about an inch, i just have to be able to screw the cap on. we'll see.

my dad took the rad to a shop near his work today. they quoted 50-75 to weld a new filler neck on it. he told them fix it. should be done tomorrow.

hes trying to get something out of the company (ultra rev) for our troubles

I've never had good luck with purchases on ebay when there's a problem with the product. But I hope you have better luck than me. It's a real shame when something like that happens.

its hard to say for sure, but i dont think ultra rev is at fault here. the radiator was damaged in shipping as far as i can tell.

Hopefully they make it right or can dispute it with ups or something then. Best of luck to you.

radiator is in. coolant filled. fuel rail primed. fired up.

didnt run it for long though, because it would appear i forgot to bolt the passenger side downpipe back to the manifold. but it did run nonetheless. sounded like a big block lol

Went to start it an hour ago, and the lock cylinder broke :
Luckily I found one in the junkyard with keys
