Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2009: Radiator rebuild arrived today

Got the radiator back I left at Hershey with Jerry of Universal Carnegie Mfg, radiator guys from PA. The core is new, one that they mfg, and has better performance than a stock tube and fin. Of course, it won't look right on a stock Model T, but this radiator is for the Autowa, and wasn't stock to begin with. But the old honeycomb core was toast and leaked bad.

They took the old honeycomb core from the Autowa radiator and took a big saw to the face, and cut a full veneer front of the old honeycomb and soldered it to their core.
Here is the inside view of the new recore:

Now the radiator is like new inside, but retains all the charm and patina of the honeycomb on the outside.......

Here is the before picture showing that the new 'face' looks just like the old.

And no paint, I want to keep the old finish just like it was on the outside of the core.

Hi Dan:

That's very cool (literally & figuratively). Where in PA is Universal Carnegie Mfg. located?

Regards,

Rick Benjamin
