my 12 model t had a couple of leaks in the inlet neck top where hose connects. Well I was recommended to a local shop and took the radiator for him to look at. He said he could fix it and left it with him. Well he called a few weeks later and said the radiator could not be repaired. Said the core was bad. Got it home and looked at the repairs. Looked like he may have gotten it to hot and tried to repair and soldered around the tubes at the top. I would like to keep the original look. Is there anyone who does repair on the old brass radiators Thanks Ed in Chattanooga

This local shop guy is not competent. I suspect that current radiator repairs do not include real creativity or talent. Yes it can be repaired.

This is the shop that did the radiator for Rob's Model K and recored the one for my 1915 roadster. I had a recore because I wanted to keep the original tank. He does a lot of antique radiators, but you may have to wait. He's in farm country and he has to take care of the farmers before the antiques.

That can be repaired fairly easy. For some reason some so called radiator shops are scared of or incompetent when it comes to repairing old car or tractor radiators.

Using a torch whether its oxy-acetelyne, mapp, natural gas, or propane is getting to be a lost art.
