    Smile new radiator

    Been running the original radiator for the past 17 yrs. Absolutely no problems, but I'm a little apprehensive about the drive to Nashville from C. Fla. at the end of July. So, I bit the bullet and got a new aluminum radiator from MSA. Looks good; and I filled it up just now and let it get up to temp. All looks good; no leaks, weeps or any other bad stuff. I think I'm about ready for the convention. Just an oil change and a chassis lube to go.

    Good for you, George. I'd love to get a new radiator, but if it ain't broke....

    My original is cooling hunky-dorey, even with Vintage Air added. The gauge never gets above 1/8" past half way. Had it pressure tested not two months back and all is well.

    See you in Nashville!

    Those radiators look sweet. I'd put in a new water pump as the shafts do break taking out the radiator at the same time.

    You guys thinking Nashville will be recovered by July. Boy did they catch it. Anything 10 feet over flood stage has got to be a mess......

    Funny radiator story: Man needs a radiator but sells his Fairlady Z because no one shows a radiator for a Farilady Z........ think about it.....
