Thanks Cliff, the one my 15 is the temp, 42"er, like to get that bigger 48X48 some day soon Wink but first that 892 Grin.
 Kevin,just get the dimensions of yours first,number of inlets and outlets, atlas has the specs this way they can verify what you have Wink

Just tell him you have a model M20 1988 model with hydraulic drive and he will send you some drawing to be sure no one has changed it, go ahead and measure the length,width and thickness I am pretty sure Wayne has one in CO.
I'll PM his number to you from the Eagles board.  


good luck

About six years ago I replaced my core with one from ABC bus in Fla.  They had purchased all the spare parts that NJT had for the model 20's.  My coach is a NJT 20, 1989 model, but the bolt pattern that connect the tanks to the core was different and I had to have it re drilled.  So, if you get a core only, watch out for that.  If yours is a swing out radiator, rebuild the swivel for the water.  I did my with high temp o rings from the hardware store.

Atlas radiator in Santa Fe Springs, Ca did my radiator on my bus, rebuilt the radiator on my truck, and is modifying the radiator for the generator on my truck (having them lower the return hose on the cross flow radiator to clear the truck frame).  They do excellent work, albeit it is expensive when dealing with big, heavy, copper/brass radiators.  Mine in the bus is a 6 row serpentine fin.  Good Luck, TomC

I just read the whole thread for I am in need if radiator work.  Recently I have noticed the temp climbing very easily.  I am trying ti decide if it is simply the ambient temp here is daily at about 95 degrees.  I bought the bus in October and it has always run at 180.  At idle about 170 or 175. 

Here is what I am trying to decide.  On one if the heat exchangers I had to place it next to the exhaust pipe.  It runs parrallel to the exhaust pipe.  My thinking was "it will help with the heat needed for the oil".  So I am trying to figure out is it the water through the heat exchanger getting super heated from the exhaust, is it because this is the first time I have driven the bus in the Texas heat or do I need radiator service.

I have resolved the issue by telling myself to get the radiator serviced because it can't hurt.  For all I know it has never been serviced.  I keep reading in the threads prior about the different radiator shops working specifically on eagle radiators.  Can't I go to a local guy and have him boil this one out and clean it up? If it is too far gone can't they solder in new fins and be done with it?  Please inform the uninformed me.  Thank you.

Maybe I should shorten my questions and break them into different sections.

Do I have to find an eagle specific radiator shop or cam any shop service my radiator?

Wayne, the very best in Houston for radiator repairs is Daniel 3515 E Freeway 713-223-2311 they have been there for years and have provided me with good service and prices over the years.
The Wayside Radiator shop is not bad either forgot the address but it not far from the old Princess Drive Inn on Wayside Dr

good luck
