Don't you still have to braze the lower radiator connector nipples to this
radiator?  You did get a great price though so let me know how it works out
as far as modifying and installation issues.

Modine makes one (complete radiator) in all metal.  I bought it for $119.00.
I am going to pick it up and install it tomorrow.  I will let you all know
how it turns out.  IMO, hardly worth the nipple repair considering the
plastic is 11 YO.  I bet the other nipples aren't in great shape either.
