We can make a simple design for the Pietenpol Aircamper, Sky Scout and Seaplane radiators but pilots frequently modify from the original Model A construct. We have constructed with the original placement and sized to suit the engine heat demands. Designs have included polished and decorative elements and we have designed several "underslung" alternatives for larger engines and well as underwing and saddlebags. We most recently added a Farmer's edition at the request of a discount shopper. Don't be limited by what you see and contact us if you would like assistance in your build.
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
