Let me get this straight:
Advantages of Brass Radiators - repairable when they start to go.
Advantages of Aluminum/Plastic Radiators - less weight
Does anyone have a comparison of the weight differences?
Does anyone have an estimated life of brass? Aluminum?
I have 163 k miles on my aluminum and it appears it is leaking out an
endcap. Not severe yet, but it's obviously going. Are end caps repairable
(and is it worth the bother?)? I am of the opinion that 162 K and 11 yrs
is pretty reasonable for a radiator to go.
Finally, any good North East sources for either type?
