Source for a brass radiator?
I went to my local rad shop that has been in business for over 45 years.

Lea - where do you get the real brass Rad, do they have em for 318?  My rad shop wants $250 to recore my old one,  new isn't that much more... but do want all brass... & where are they made?
 
Yep.  Easy.  Any Rad shop can recore yours with one.  Just need good tanks.  That's what was in it originally.  If those farmers can't get one, send her down.  I'll have my guy do it.  He only does classic rads now.

Ya, my local shop Eddies Rad can do it for $250, as I said, but for not
much more I can go all new, if the quality is there, and if I can find
out who actually makes them... everyone on the net has aluminum. 
I'll recore this one if I have to.

My buddy silver solders the tanks when he spies a thin area.....usually any rad guy who's been in the biz enough years knows where they get thin. That's called EXPERIENCE to you young-un's
