Radiator decisions...


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I'm hoping to crowdsource an opinion on radiator brands for my 73 302cid no a/c.  Mine welcomed spring by "springing" a leak

 

I have been looking at OEM style radiators, I really don't want to try painting aluminium and modifying brackets if I can avoid it.

 

I have narrowed the list down to Thermal Solutions Mfg or U.S. Radiator.  

I can get a U.S. Radiator through Classic Ind for less than a similarly sized TSM radiator offered by NPD, which according to the product descriptions they are same core size and row count.

 

So, does anyone have first hand experience with either manufacture?  Most reviews that I have seen really only speak to the vender and not the manufacturer.

 

U.S. Radiator does offer the L6/V8 radiator that was stock in my car, meaning no new $100+ shroud ::thumb::  But are they good? :huh:

 

Thanks for any and all help :thankyouyellow:

Bryan~

I have gotten several from here, US radiator makes them. They have been great quality and fit like a glove. Always my first choice for replacement radiators.

Thanks, I pulled the trigger and got the U.S. Radiator, L6/302 size with 4 rows from Classic Ind. $407 total. Now I don't need a new shroud ::thumb::
