Chris,

Since you are in San Antonio, are radiators from VIA buses?

Hi Nick: How is the Jake working, I bought my 8v-92 radiators from Diesel Radiator Co. in Melrose Park Illinois, This was back in 01, the item # was 6K-1-5 and at that time they where 1594 dollars for the pair, and shipping was 88.00 dollars.  Hope that this will help. Bill

Nick,

At one time, Detroit Radiator was the source to MCI.  They may still be.

I bought a pair of "102" radiators from them for about $1900. in 2004.  They were very accomodating.  I called on a Tuesday, they built them, and I picked them up on Saturday.

The radiators in my post are not mine, and I don't know the guy who posted the message, just passing along the info.  Contact the person at the email provided.  This was just posted a few days ago to our group, so the info should still be good.  Good luck.

Hi Guy's,

It looks like Rd Roelle's lead turned out to be the most reasonable.

Detroit Radiator.. Thirteen and change is the delivered price for both corr's and bolts and gaskets too.

Good to 500 hp 7" thick corr.

Don, Lewis doesn't work at Sierra anymore.

Thanks all for your help!

Hi Guy's,

My radiator core's arrived yesterday from Detroit Radiator. Boy, are they pretty copper finish...

I picked up an extra set of cans and bars from Bruce Knee and cleaned and painted them. Now, I plan on building them up in the shop

before I take out my old rads from the bus. This way I can do a swap when they are done.

Question..  Can I paint the new cores?  If so, what kind of paint?  and should I add silicone to the new gaskets that came with the nut and bolt kit?

Thanks in advance.

Nick,

My info was that a "light"coat of FLAT BLACK would enhance the radiation of heat by an appreciable(?) margine that made it well worth doing.  Gloss, semi-gloss and other colors impeded the flow of heat and served as mils insulators.  I do't think heat radiation is the only concern or motivation to apply paint.  The corrosion angle comes into play....especially since you mentioned Pa.   I was raised there.

All those pretty silvery alu. condensors should be flat black, I guess.

2 cents from long ago.
