Anyone have any tips I can pass on to him? It's his wife's car and she can't turn the heater on because the smell from the leak makes her sick so he is getting a hard time from her about it! They would have to get a loan to get it fixed at the dealer so he is looking for other alternatives. Any tips I can pass on to him?
Replacing the rad isn't that hard to do. He can get it recored or get a used one in good condition. If he is on the east coast I would recommend getting in touch with Paul Grant or Marty (Drillbit) on Discoweb.org
Last radiator I purchase for my DI was $269 and it was an original Nissen.
If he needs any help have him get in touch with me: cinqueg at hotmail dot com
