Re: The '36 Ford Coupe Rebuild

The old radiator shop that had that a while ago said if those radiator cores set for a long time dry, they tend to leak a lot. Hopefully your friend can get it fixed up for you!

Thanks Gentlemen.

Ryan: My friend at the radiator shop said that the last person to work on it didn't flush it out good enough after dipping it and it rusted/corroded from the inside. I found another radiator and he is testing it now.
