A little plug for YT parts

Recently had to replace the radiator on my M. The old one, probably the original, was un-repairable by my local radiator shop. I looked at local tractor salvage, and no dice. So, because it's a working tractor I bit the bullet and decided to buy a new one online. I ended up paying almost $500 for it from this site, with shipping included. The radiator shop guy said that wasn't bad, and he'd have paid 400-500 for a core.

Anyway, I was worried about fit and that it would be a lot different from the original item. However, the item arrived quickly and fit fine. Seemed pretty much like a perfect replica, though it felt much lighter (maybe the old one was full of sediment). The bolt holes for shroud and for the sheet metal are all correct. The pipe threads for the drain were the same on the lower hose connector as well. So, in short, it bolted right in and seems to do the job fine with no leaks and looks good in the old tractor. One thing that wasn't as good as the original (I guess) is that it has a plastic overflow tube instead of the steel one on the original radiator. It's nice to have the old girl back to work.

Update on this purchase - I finally put the tin back on last week and it fit well. All four holes on the grill lined up with the correctly threaded holes on the radiator. Also the tabs for spring latches on the hood are sturdy and line up correctly. No issues. All seems fine with the radiator.

The grill bolt holes looked right but I have not put it on! I left the hood and grill off because I was tinkering with the throttle/governor linkage. I'll let you know what I find when I put the sheet metal back on.

Please do. I think most complaints about aftermarket rads are the fact those holes don't line up.

If the tractor is 70 years old, it only cost you about $7:00 a year, that's a bargain to cool all that gas it's consumed !!!

Did the grill fit without modifications to the bolt holes? How about the hood latches, did they catch good? I have bought several aftermarket rads, and only had one that I didnt have to modify something to get it to fit right, and that was for a Cub. Im not knocking YT or anything like that, Im just curious.
