Unless you want to keep it original, toss the brass rad out and put in an aluminum one.

Don Graham if you are going original. Don does everything from honeycomb to standard tube that only a couple of rad shops in North America can do. How many rad shops can cut the top tank off and form the rad into a curve at the top.
Yours would be a walk in the park for him. He is semi retired and works from home now. Went there on a garage crawl a few years back and learnt a lot from his talk on rads.

 Jim has retired!!    Ace has repaired and built several rads for me over the years.

New guys bought the business. I think Jim told me it was a father and son team but I could be wrong on that. They are in the same location in London

I don't think they made it. No signs on the front wall and weeds growing up in the driveway

CPW Cooling is Todd Good, one of the best welders I have ever known. His toll free is 866-223-2665. His Facebook site is CPW cooling. Check out his page for some examples of his work

If you want to hit Mt Clemons Mi. talk to Charlie at Superior Rad. Google the company. His rad went into my 29. $225 for an aluminum rad with a couple of custom items.

x2...quality product at a great price.   Does the big rigs all day and throws in some custom hot rod jobs in between.  They really know their stuff.
