Radiator work

Just found a leak in my CJ's radiator this morning while heading to work. Anyone know of a good place that won't rape me on price to get it fixed? In the Shelby Twp. area, so close to here would help.

Thanks

Look up radiator doctor on Ebay, then call their 800 number. I bought a CJ radiator (for an AMC V8) from them for $130. They charged $5 for shipping and it was at my door the next day. Unbelievable.

small holes: or cracks. I drain, flush, and use the air hose on the radiator, then repair it with a torch and acid core solder

Don't think I want to repair this one. It looks like it has bit the fan at least once in the past. Rad looks a bit on the rough side, so thinking replacement is the way to go. Just called the Radiator Doctor and they stated they can get me a 3-core lifetime warr. for $195. shipped.

Anyone deal with them and give me more feedback on them? How long you had the rad, how good is it, etc.

Thanks

I'm very happy with mine. They have a warranty on top of the manufacturers warranty. It arrived in perfect condition and went right in.

www.radiatorbarn.com has good prices too, but it depends on the vehicle

they are much more expensive for the CJ

try Master Radiator off of Elizabeth Lake Road. It's not far from ABC and they've always treated me well.
