I usually leave my radiator cores unpainted, but yours looks like it could use some help. Painting probably ok as long as you keep it light.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yeah, it had a hole punched in it and I wasn't going to spend $6-800 bucks to get it recored. I guess you have to draw the line somewhere. You will hardly see it when it gets in the tractor especially if I cover it up with a little black paint.

Here is a picture of the repair. I actually thought they did a pretty good job. Boiled, tested (including the cap), and repaired for $90.

I had a fist size hole in an M radiator that I bought in 1993, changed the antifreeze and it leaked. Recommended or not I put Bars leaks in it and it lasted for 19 years before I sold it in Feb this year. Intended to restore it, which meant a new radiator, but never got around to it.
