RE: WTB:5k radiator
I did check out the link ... thanks for the pointer Dave!
Having had a brand new radiator that didn't last long I strongly recommend
checking out what brand of radiator one gets for that $117. If you are
getting a good quality aftermarket unit (like Modine) or an OEM unit (Behr?)
you're likely to be OK. My first attempt I got an off-brand all metal unit
which started leaking within two years. I made sure that the replacement
was a Modine unit and it hasn't been a problem since. As I reported at the
time, I was amazed to find that the dry Modine unit was noticeably heavier
than the original replacement unit ... even though it still had some water
My recollection was that I paid somewhere near $200 for the Modine ...

You can buy a NEW one for $150 or less.
Why fool around with a used one unless you know it's relatively new?
Check out this link for a NEW one priced at $117.
