    i saw antifreeze in the driveway this morning and i found a hole in my radiator - it is the original so i am not interested in patching it. anyone have a good online source for a heavy duty radiator? i see them in LMC for 200 bones. anyone have one of these. thanks...

    You sure you got the right radiator??

    I called not more than a month ago, and with a lifetime warranty I don't think it was anymore than $173. Shipped, 3 core (so I didn't have to change radiator brackets) with auto trans cooling, for my '86 K5.

    the original owner changed it to a 4 row so i am set up with the 4 row brackets. could not find one local. i got back on the phone with radiator.com and got it shipped next day for 231.00. i still think that was a bit high - even for a 4 row...
