Need one. Mine is pissing on the floor.

If you have a good line on where to buy one at a decent price I'll take that too.

RN is like $800
AB is like $950
SFHP couldn't figure out their store.
Lucky8 site is tough to use with iphone.

have it recored locally ... Google radiator shop and they rebuild it. That way you avoid crap like the latest radiators having different fittings for oil cooler lines!

A 3.5 radiator and add an after market cooler

Chris, have you used a 3.5 with no fitting issues?

3.5 rad doesn't have oil cooler and it looks like the top hose would foul on the NAS shroud.

Clay, try Dolphin Auto in Alexandria...think they have done work for a few of the locals. I had them flush and flow test my radiator awhile back.

You're probably right on the top hose to shroud conflict.

At $250, plus having the hose inlet direction modified is cheaper than a NAS unit.

Definitively give rebuilding your own unit consideration if there is a quality shop locally and your unit is in good enough condition to be rebuilt.

thanks Jeff. My biggest problem is downtime. I have a driveshaft that needs balancing but getting to Lorton is the same problem. Loudoun sucks when it comes to local industrial trades. Wine/Brew/Restaurants we've got nailed in.

I don't think mine is bleeding profusely yet.

The wetness is on the top half. Probably due to too many muddy traps and lack of good cleaning up inside there over the years. My condenser fan gave up the ghost years ago.

Is it just the side tanks I'm really concerned about being in good condition?

Check with Zack at RN. I believe he told me the aftermarket radiators they sell were better quality than the genuine ones they get.

That's great to hear. Price is a bit better. I emailed him last night for quote with shipping.

The Proline?
RADIATOR ASSEMBLY DEFENFER NAS V8, ESR3685, RNE130, PLE130 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts

I'm running a Proline in my RRC from 2006; no issues at all.

Personally I would only go genuine. After doing a recore and having my truck get hot because air couldn't get through the 4 cores I would only stick to stock. Unless the proline is free or proven to be exactly the same as factory I can't see trying to save money on this. I can't understand having a truck a worth what a NAS truck is worth and then being cheap on parts that could cause catastrophic failures.

I took this advice when others told me to recore. I went genuine and its been perfect. Didn't get any real deal from my shop on parts but it's on them if something were to fail.

From what I understand, some of the Genuine stuff isn't up to par as the original stuff. The quality control is there.

If its NOS that could be a different story.

I trust RN to provide a comparable product and feel if if shits the bed they'll stand behind it. At the end of the day I doubt there is anything special about the genuine. Plus, the Proline deal is made in Scotland.

No doubt RN will stand behind their product but are you joking you trust RN to provide a comparable product with proline? Obviously no offense to Zack or RN as he is my go to guy for stuff but no way proline and genuine is the same and it is a case by case basis.

As for standing behind the product, you really want to remove it again if it fails?

Sounds fun. Good luck.

I will say that if you talk to me, I'm very honest about whether I trust the Proline version of an item. I don't want it to fail on you. It can be hit or miss, but if we have issues with a product we try to replace it with a better supplier at that time.

However, when it comes to this radiator; I will say that it appears better in every way to the original. I have not run one personally, but it is a quality part. The Genuine ones have been coming brush painted, already rusting. Personally I wouldn't run one.

Yeah, I trust they are providing a comparable product. They're in a much more competitive parts arena today and I trust they're making the right business decision.
