I May Need to Get a Recore

Something tells me I need a recore.

Anyone got a guy in the GTA?

I found these guys online but referrals are usually the best.  https://www.yorkdaleradiator.com/contact-us

sadly the best I could suggest nowadays is the phone book (remember those lol)

your questions leave me suddenly feeling the loss of being able to "just ask dad"

see , he knew or knew of almost every rad shop in the country at one time

last of his buddys in the city that was still running a rad shop was on islington rd or kipling

- maybe a mile or so north of queensway

there was a ring rad at comstock and warden in scarlem - they had a "mr gas tank" coating/lining deal but I have no idea if they're even still there

 

I would try the phone book and google anything you come up with to look for customer reviews

Thanks, no.

I am just checking to see if anyone's used or has a "guy". I like dealing with people that have dealt with someone before.

I may send it to a fella in Hamilton. Referred to by someone on another site. Barton Radiator Works. Talked to him on the phone today and he seems to know his stuff.

Frank's Radiator on Crockford in Scarborough did mine. He seemed to know his stuff and price was reasonable.

I used York Spring/Rad in Aurora for the Mustang.  He is in Aurora 905-727-3121  He advised against the 3 core I asked for and suggested an oversize 2 core.  I was running it hard last week in 80 degree weather, temp guage never moved.

Maybe late, but here is who I used for mine.

Barrie Radiator in Oshawa

www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Ontario/Oshawa/Barrie-Radiator-Oshawa/1843303.html

Says he does gas tanks as well.

any ideas on spray in gas tank lining like the "Mr Gas Tank" outlets at ring rad used to do?

I'm not actually looking to line a gas tank but rather an old air tank - so I can use it as a clean contaminant free water tank for the water cooling system on my computer

my buddy is licenced for pressure vessel welding so I doubt my tacked on bungs will leak on my carpet..lol

so , I need some sort of spray in lining as a steel tank isn't going to stay clean otherwise

and being an old long unused air storage tank probably isn't clean now

5 or so gallon tank , just the right size with some simple weld ons for casters and a frame on top for the PC to sit on , and it has a tire valve so I can use it to bleed the air out,
.. done
.. made from currently useless old junk
perfect !!

a lining is going to block the heat from dissipating / radiating out of the steel tank

it has fans and 4 radiators for dissipating heat

the corner where I have to keep the computer can get to 100* easily in the summer (no a/c)

5 gallons of water should resist heating up from radiant heat in the corner ..I hope 

(two 3/4 holes in the floor would put the tank on a shelf on the basement wall directly below where it can't get hot if I need to)

I'm trying to use water volume or mass to control heat more than the fans and rads would without a huge reserve of water

with the water cooling installed last fall the cpu temps are an average 10-15 degrees C lower
- running the fans , so far actually makes no difference so I have a nice quiet PC with no fan noise

if I can make it run cool enough all the time without fans then they get removed and the case goes air tight

then I don't have to completely disassemble my pc every 4-6 months to clean the huge pile of crap outta it

- that's a big win there lol

As one who is considered a Luddite by everyone I know due to my lack of any kind of computer knowledge,I
am confused by DJDs post on computer cooling. What kind of computer are you cooling. People laugh at
my old computer but it is cooled by a little fan that seems to do the job O.K.. I get the mental image
that you are running one of those giant room size behemoths that spit cards and need a bevy of beauties
to run it like in the movies. Ed

lol
it's a home built one , made from FORMERLY semi high end parts

I have a system .. buy the last newest greatest thingys .. whatever
rather than the current new best best gotta have's type things
then I get my stuff at the better we need to dump these price..

but I built a semi serious PC gaming rig - but not for games

I wanted something capable of doing design plans and maybe even run a 3d printer so good graphics were the main focus

that and I can add as many hard drives as I want with my "raid card" that has 24 hard drive ports and those can be doubled or tripled IF needed so I'll never run out of storage - ever

 

I lost two store bought PC's due to those little fans on the CPU failing 

I'll see if I can find a couple of pics

Sounds interesting, but way, way, over my head. Amazing what people can do nowadays. Like the 3d printer idea but
my main question is can you really land the shuttle on Mars like people say the average P.C.
can do? Ed

first

water block on cpu with two water lines in/out - it's a hollow copper block instead of a gas filled aluminum block with fins and fan

second.. got skulls?..lol I do

third pic .. meet "Black Betty" 

water column on the back corner, water pump mounted below / in front of it

radiator/reservoir/pump/controller mounted on top of PC

(on the other side is a rad about the size of the side panel with no fan - more reservoir)

and the "8 track" port at the top front allows any size style or type of hard drive to be installed and either read , used or used for storage & removed  like the memory card in your phone or camera 'cept much larger

and 4th pic- raid card with 24 hard drive ports

thought of the keg .. but 50 60 bucks vs free tank I already have
plus at the rate I drink it would seriously take me years to empty lol

I can make 12 last most of the year without trying very hard

It will cost way more to coat the inside of what you have now.

There are some empties for sale on Kijiji. But more than 50-60 bucks...damn...
