Leakie PRC does not epoxy their radiators, they are all aluminum and tig welded. Your's must be made by someone other then PRC.
Hopefully you will be able to clean it out. Make sure to use antifreeze made for aluminum rads.

Leakie Base price is about 400, if you want any extras like an internal oil cooler figure closer to 500.

to remove my rad i have to remove the nose and grill at the same time.however i reckon the fan should unbolt and slide out with the rad in place.didnt get the paint finished today,need to darken it a tad and will try again tomorrow

rad ready to be bolted up.cover on rad cap came loose.i roughed up the surface and stuck it with a two pack adhesive.powder coated it black while i had it off

matts37chev Hey too many projects, is yours the standard core, or upgrade to bigger tubes?
04-14-2015 07:56 PM
Leakie 1 inch tubes in mine, and yes it is two rows.

that sure looks good, it would appear to be a level or 2 nicer than mine, judging by the tanks.
my mounts look to be in "about" the same place, or close anyway

matts37chev Here is the sludge I need to try and clean out of mine.
If this goes bad, I guess it will probably be easier to buy a new one.

So my next question is, what size tubes are in your rads?
(I assume they are only 2 rows)

It's amazing how little space there is in those grill shells. Working on anything in there is a pain.
