    SA200 New Radiator

    I see new radiators for SA200's all over the place online. Price seems to range from $204 to about $360. They all look alike. Who should I stay away from? I'm getting to closer to 1st start on my restoration. Also, what about the mounting of the radiator....the holes in the chassis are way bigger than the mounting studs, yet I can't find a "Lincoln Part No." for rubber pads/grommets, bushings/mounts...etc.

    What do you guys do...?

    Thanks again...

    Try to get the Radiator that's the Copper version like the original. I bought the aluminum version that was tig welded together and very sturdy, but the notches that Lock the cap onto the filler neck were opposite of the original and had to cut one of the ears off of the cap, so that the cap cover of the grill would close over it. Another thing I had to do is cut the spacer bushings down inside the grill because the total width of the Radiator is about 3/4" wider than the original, and was way to tight to fit and line the bolt holes up for proper alignment with the fan shroud in place.

    I'm almost half-$$ed ready to take stab at repairing my original....it doesn't leak, it's the soldered on brackets that are in bad shape.
