Was wondering what year the model t stopped useing honeycomb style radiator an went to the strips going across . Is the honeycomb radiators available ? Thanks
Do my knowledge, all honeycomb radiators for model T's were aftermarket. I don't believe Ford ever produced one from the factory.
To my knowledge* sorry.
They look good , are they available?
There is a guy in Australia that makes quality honeycomb cores. His name is Greg Stevens. His website is www.ftrs.com.au. Hope this helps. Don
Any old ones are usually not worth trying to use. The convoluted water path through the core seems to accumulate sediment and to not flow very well.
My experience confirms Jerry's statement. I tried everything, but the honeycomb in my 1923 touring has been replaced by a new flat tube from Berg's.
I had Barney's honeycomb cleaned by a shop in Auburn. It looks great, but I haven't gotten Barney on the road yet.
The honeycomb radiator on my Ď23 cools great! Iíve had minor leaks repaired over the years. I plan to buy a Bergís, as Steve did, this year at Hershey to keep as a spare.
I believe Peerless was one of the companies that made aftermarket honeycomb radiators for Model Tís.
I have a Hexcel honeycomb radiator that came with my car.
It appears to be in excellent condition, but I don't know for sure since I haven't run the car yet.
