Rod Radiators

#1
I need to get a new radiator for my 1934 Chevy Master. It had a Griffin radiator since I built the car in 2010. It is now leaking from the joint between the tubes and lower tank. I have no reason to believe that this leak is caused by anything other than a manufacturer defect. Needless to say, I don't think I'll be getting another Griffin radiator.

I just got off the phone with Scott from Wizzard Cooling. He was very helpful and their pricing is much less than Griffin.

Any feedback or advice would be much appreciated.

I used a Wizard cooling radiator for my 53 custom truck. So far so good. The only think I didn't expect or like was the "Wizard Cooling" name etched in the top of the radiator tank. That wasn't in the final drawing they sent me.

All the work we do in engine compartments, the last thing I would want is a radiator to have a name on top.
Would not think that I'm the only idiot to think this way.

Hi, is your radiator aluminum or copper brass ? Any competent radiator shop should be able repair it.I have a 34 standard sedan with a 350 small block in it with a copper brass radiator.

Some Griffin radiators use epoxy to attach and seal various components. I looked into it when I was looking for my truck, seems to be a problem with them. I always thought Griffin as a top brand, but on at least some models they have dropped the ball.

I go to my local radiator shop. Give them my dementions and mounting points and the make a new custom fit radiator. Last one was just under $200 and it looks factory.
