I bought a new radiator for my bus. I found one web site that described a radiator that was close to what I had. It was Thermal Solutions mfg.
The problem was the web site did not give any way to order one. I called them and after chatting with them to confirm that it was what i needed said they will not sell me one. I had to go to a local dealer and buy from them.
There was only one in the bay area. And boy was it expensive. but i sorta lucked out. The manager had been there over 30yrs and knew about the older vehicles.
It seems that the radiator for a E-350 was way more expensive that the radiator for the F-350 but he knew that they were the same radiator; exactly the same. The difference was the mount brackets.
I brought my old one in and he moved the brackets over.
So the tip is: find a real radiator shop with a soldering bench and tank etc and they can unsolder the old brackets and put them on a new F-350 radiator. or maybe they were just blowing smoke and had a old F-350 radiator in stock, the box did have a lot of dust
I dont really think so, everyone i spoke with seemed like very honorable folks. that goes a long way with me. When you find a shop that has been in business along time and the folks have been there a long time, its easy to believe that they are good folks and a good company.
Now I have to fix the fan shroud that I broke getting the radiator out.
does anyone know what kind of plastic the fan shroud is made from. That will help a lot because then I can "weld" it. I need to know what kind of filler rod to get.
The triangle gap is where the lower clips go, the two broken parts are less than 1/2 inch wide by my fingers.
