Radiator core?

I give up! I have spent 3 months playing with my F-14 radiator core trying to patch all the leaks. I have disassembled and reassembled it at least a dozen times and have close to half of the tubes closed up now. Every time I think I have them all I find a couple more. This last time 6 more showed up so that's it, time to look elsewhere.
Does anyone make a replacement core? I have found them for other models but cant seem to find one for an F-14. I hate to go through this again with another junker. It's been the most time consuming part of this restoration by far at this point and I'm back to square one with it.

Have you tried Rice Equipment? I Purcased a new Core from them last year for my F-20. It did require a little cleanup of solder and i had to trim the corners to provide proper radius and drill two holes for the overflow tube. At $261.00 it was a bargan compared to the local radiator shop quote of $575 for there neew one. Call Gordon @(814) 226-9200

I had a radiator on a super C fixed up this past summer. I looked at used ones and the cost was unbelievable. I thought it was beyond repair, but I took it to radiator shop and he fixed it like brand new for about $270, but it was worth it by the time you look around and around.

Tim.....I've done the same in restoration projects and have found that I "Bite the Bullet"....and take it to a rad. shop....all they need is the top and bottom plates that the tubes are soldered to and they can retube it......and then you don't have to worry about it again ever....if you take care of it properly.....in "75" I had a "H" rad. done and in "89" a "M" rad done that way and are still going strong..no worrys...is a little expensive but worth it.....Good Luck.....

I wondered if that would be possible. Problem is one of the plates has two 2-3 inch splits in it as well. Maybe they can reproduce that as well?
I spent so much time on it now that I just want it fixed no matter the cost. Well, within reason anyway!! :-)
