[s-cars] RE: radiator woes >>> used radiator likely needed in CT

There is/was a small radiator shop on Connecticut Blvd near Jones Air.  If
you can find it, they did a repair on a Quantum rad for me a year or two
ago.  They did a nice job and cleaned and flushed the rad for me  - for $30.

That said, if it was my car, I'd probably replace the radiator.  Yes, they
are expensive, but they are also a pia to get in and out.  To me, it's the
kind of job that I'm not interested in doing more than once.

Fine TurkeyWeek morning to you-

Confirmed this weekend I've got a puncture in the center of my radiator,
likely caused by the monkey that did my Tbelt the day I purchased the car.

Question:  are these units reparable?  I believe it's got plastic end caps,
typically they are not.  How about just soldering (er, or whatever they do)
the offending tube?  If not, anyone here got a spare laying around???  I
gotta believe this sucker's > $300-400.  F me if that's the case.  And I
doubt putting a new one in will make the car any faster... 8-).

Any removal / install tips (aside from being bent over from the above
raping?)???  Hopefully the BatSignal in the subject line nets me something
