Turns out by 69Z has a major leak in the radiator about just below the mid-line of the radiator causing it to overheat. Does anyone know if this can be fixed and the radiator totally reconditioned? Since its the original, I would like to salvage it (also, is it worth it since I can get a repro for about $200). THanks

If it's in the core, I'd trash it. It really is better in the long run. The repo radiators are probably correct. A new core with the original tanks is another option. You might want to transfer the ID tag, if there is one, to the new rad.

you could have it recored, keeps the same "case",so it can keep the numbers/stamps.should be about the same money as a new/re-man. one.
