I am considering getting a new radiator for our 1931 8-98 and first I am wondering if there are any sources to buy one or will I need to get one custom built or mine re-cored?

Does anyone know how many cores are in these and recommendations on anything extra to do in a new one?

Lastly, does anyone have an old one they are willing to sell that I could use as a template if I find a local shop to build me one?

Next to removal, does the whole radiator out shell have to come off to get the radiator out?

Hello Curt,
I would recommend for the early honey comb radiators and period correct cores you need to go to specialist suppliers like the Brass Works. Similar specialist companies are in the UK, New Zealand and Australia and I expect in most countries. A cheap option If your core is not visible you could fit a modern cellular core, any radiator repairers that re core truck and car radiators could fit one.
