He said it's leaking at or around the radiator filler neck, not at the thermostat.
That's why I asked if it had plastic or brass tanks.
If brass, he may be able to be re-solder it.
If plastic ... perhaps something like Norton Speedgrip would re-seal a crack.
Either way ... these repairs *might* be possible without having to remove the rad.
The bottom line is that this rad is going to have to be repaired or replaced shortly, and all of this talk of COLD thermostats is futile, IMO.
As stated earlier ... I just can't see this thing NOT boiling over come springtime in Texas.
