aluminum vs metal copper?
i recently purchased a 1968 chevy ii nova s,s, from a dealer with 31000 miles on it,
however, now that the vehicle is home , i noticed a small antifreeeze leak on the inside
of the upper radiator, while i want to keep my vehicle as original as possible, i have
gotten prices of 600 or more to recore the current one, vs a aluminum radiator for
aprrox 200 that is said to be 10 % better flow volume? does the aluminum take away
from the looks of the original motor? thanks rak
Take out the radiator & take it to a radiator shop. The will locate the leak & "pinch-off" the lealy tube & pressure test it. Reinstall it, add new anti- freeze, cap, & thermostat, problem solved. If real bad the shop will tell you then replace it, O.E.M. original is cheaper unless high perf. is needed then it's up to your budget.
