Has anyone had any experience with aftermarket radiators for their Ford tractors? The local radiator shop wants $309 to recore mine, or $228 for a new replacement. Are the replacement radiator bottom and top tanks as good as the original, or does it really matter?

If you do not have power steering, an aftermarket may fit. I have power steering on my 63 4000 and am having to do major modification of the lower neck to clear the power steering belt.

If I had it to do over again, I would have bought on from Abingdon Equipment. They have it in stock and it is only a little more than the one I bought.

The tanks are not as nice on the aftermarket one that I purchased. It was made in China and the workmanship is just not as good.

Good Luck,

Should not cost more than $150.to $175.For a new radiator or to recore yours.For originality your tank would be better,if your only working with it a new one is fine.Both recored or new included a 1 year warranty .Good luck .Craig..
