Radiator Barn isn't in business anymore, which is unfortunate, as they had some of the best deals on all-metal radiators.

I know many who weld aluminum. But they are either back east or I work with them. Unfortunately, my company isn't keen on working on personal stuff. I've only lived in Phoenix since last September so I'm still settling in.

What kind of two core radiator do you have? Why do you have it as a backup? Is it brass/aluminum/or a plastic/metal combo?

You can braze aluminum. Just gotta TIG braze it instead of using a torch.

Picking up a 2 row brass radiator for $60. I'll probably take it to a shop to refurbish it.

Maybe I could just put some CLR in the radiator and let soak. Then flush it out.

Thoughts?

I've heard of people doing that. No harm in it unless it reacts with brass.

Hi Louie, you know the answers. Better radiator with a quaility cap.

Repaetably folks keep referring to a multi core radiator. A radiator only has one core. The finned section between the tanks. Now that core can have multiple rows within the core. Depending on design more rows isn’t always better. The shape, size and fin count all play major factors here.
