need new radiator 110 Tith 2.5na

Can you guys give me advise on getting a new radiator? oem? aftermarket? something else?

My oem is leaking. I am using this truck as a winter driver. Nothing crazy just going through mild snow. Can you give me an idea if a radiator cover is a good add on for winter driving?


Thanks,
Buck

Choices: Recoring or replacement. I bet Recoring will work.

I passed my old one along to Adam (speedpin). Not sure where it ended up but he may chime in on a good deal for a used one. It came out of a Tith. IIRC, it wasn't in bad shape.

Considering the cost of a new OEM radiator I'd first consider re-coring. How bad is it leaking?

A radiator cover will certainly help hold the heat in the coolant which should translate into better heating inside the cab if that's what your after.

I have a used one that didn't leak. I can get you some pics later if interested.

I have one out of my 89 110 ... 2.5TD, not sure of the difference between the TD and NA here.

Put it on new in Oct of 2014 and used it until we pulled the 2.5TD in Feb of 2016.

Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss a price . . . taking up room in the garage.

If it's leaking, get it fixed! It doesn't mean you need a new one. Do you buy a new tire just because you get a flat? Go to a radiator repair shop, not an automotive repair shop. If it is bad enough to need replacement they'll tell you.

Yes! A radiator muff helps!

Do not buy a new one. Going to a good radiator shop and having it repaired or recored will result in a better radiator than any of the new options.
