Sam,
If it's the original radiator, get it recored. I'm sure you have a radiator shop near you that can do it. Had it done to my L34 four yrs. ago and cost $550.00. Wasn't cheap, but still has the original tanks.

Yes, have a shop not far from me. I was going to get that done and put it on the shelf but will just reinstall instead. Apparently no OEM type radiators available it looks like. Have a nice Thanksgiving.

Sammy...

Having your factory unit re-cored is a good idea...make sure they retain the original tanks and all other oem components...

If you are looking for a quality replacement, these folks have good products...they look original and work well.

Sam,
Take the time to "stamp" an identifier on it if it has an original tag. Take a photo of it and the rad. Just my .02 cents. You never know......

stamping/etching initals is a good idea and photos...I would also remove the tag so there is no chance of it getting lost...i keep most of my original tags in the file with car info...that way i know where they are.
