Have you thought about just taking the radiator out and down to a radiator shop?

I have been told two different things by radiator shops related to my question of copper or aluminum. I want to know who knows what they are talking about.

I did a search for your radiator and they're very scarce... didn't find any. I always figured all my radiators were brass.... Regardless, if you end up with a remanufactured radiator, it will certainly be one that was repaired and pressure testsed.
