Fordson Radiator cores
Restore with the correct tube and fin density for your restoration or save money with a more efficient tube design.
Ours are made with the pass through center hole and a round tube stagger to mimic the OE. Cast tanks that bolt to plate headers can be used to scribe and punch by us at our shop rate or marked and drilled on site by you, the customer, for free. Please communicate if you would like us to undertake this work as it will reduce the cost.
We are often asked by prospective customers to “just re-core my radiator.” We do not just recore a radiator, rod out cores or hot tank a radiator in caustic chemicals. These may be time saving techniques but they can damage, weaken or shorten the life of your radiator. Furthermore, these terms suggest quick and easy fixes to fundamental problems, weak brittle metal, clogged tubes or compromised joints or seams. Shortcuts invite problems and we don't want problems. Instead we offer a thorough restoration service. Read more about the process
We make to order. Please allow adequate time for us to build.
