    Ok, so my factory radiator finally gave out and has more leaks than ever. I'm on the hunt for a quality replacement. The two I have narrowed down to are Brassworks, and Walker.

    I know Walker has a very good reputation, but Brassworks is no slouch either.
    What have you run, which would you prefer, which would you recommend? I see you can go a pressure system with Brassworks, have any of you done this with a stock 'banger engine??

    Thanks for the info guys, these damn things ain't cheap!!! :rolleyes:

    Always used Walker,no complaints or failures,never used Brassworks so not going to compare.

    Thanks, I had a PRC rad in a 52 Plymouth awhile back and it cooled well. Is yours aluminum? I ask because I'd like to stay away from aluminum since you'll be able to plainly see this radiator.

    Thanks for the comments so far.

    Bump for more opinions....?

    I did see that Brassworks has a $50 Alliance discount which is nice.

    pressurized system will work better and eliminate that ever so often puking up a bit of water, both radiators are solid choices and can be pressurized

    of course you can always have your factory radiator recored for less money than a new radiator and from an old timey stand point will look better

    Had the same problem with mine a few years ago... found an old guy locally and had him put a new core in it. Works great, looks nice and saved a lot of money!
