RE: 5k radiator
I had the same flange break on my '83 5kt plastic radiator. I looked
into the repair method (glue + new stub flange) but I got some
negative feedback about it from this list at the time. I opted to
replace the OE radiator with an aftermarket all brass one. I believe
that Chris Semple at Autobahn (603-226-1810, firstname.lastname@example.org)
helped me out in this respect. Matter of fact, the unit I got was for
'84-up 5k's so it was a bit of a tight squeeze, but it is still
working fine, a year+ later.
