    Thumbs up SVPU aluminum radiator

    Two thumbs up. "El fitto perfecto!!" Drop-in ready with zero modifications. Very nice radiator. I am looking foward to cooler engine temps autocrossing this summer...

    Bigger AND lighter! That's a win-win in my book. It'll polish up, too, it looks like. ;-)

    That reminds me, rats! I forgot to weigh the difference to see how many pounds I was shedding.

    Well, at least the bolts aren't rusty, and you won't get your hands dirty when you pull it back out to weigh! :-P

    Sigh, it looks like this is no longer available? I was out in the shop yesterday working on another project, and as I walked by our SVO, I noticed there was a couple of small green puddles under the front of the car. I haven't investigated in detail, but I'm thinking there's a new radiator in our future.

    call or email SVPU, just because it's not on his site, may not mean it's not available.

    They have recently changed their website, and may not have gotten everything back up.

    Thanks, Eric, I will. I did notice that the variety was VERY limited to what it used to be.

    Had a closer look at the radiator over the weekend, and it appears the driver's side tank has a crack where it is brazed to the core. I have an email in to Paul to check on the status of the radiator, and if I don't get a reply after a couple of days will call. I'll update this thread when I get info.

    It's still available, in case anyone else is needing one.

    The trigger has been pulled. Paul said he has changed manufacturers, and for the better. With this, I think I have all the parts, except the heater core, to refresh the cooling system on our 86.
