Just to follow up on this...
Rod is sending my the last Nissen's radiator he has to replace mine and
convering shipping charges (to me and the return charge)! And replacing
the bottom mount that is stuck in the other radiator.
So, once again, Rod has shown great customer service!


Disclaimer: I have nothing to gain by saying good things about Rod @ TPC
