    Based on the thicknss of the core, my guess is yes.

    You should be able to look into the rad cap neck and count the flews(sp?). Oddly, I don't see a cap neck. :confused:

    oh yeah I've heard about those....they come filled from the factory and are good for a couple years without ever needing maintenance and then you can just toss it and pick up a new one right?---nice score:haha::haha:
