Is it appropriate to post a question about my Massey Ferguson 97?I can't find a radiator for my tractor.I was thinking about using a radiator with the ability to keep it cool and rigging the tank top and bottom to make it look right.I need some thoughts on this.In other words I would try to make it look like it had the right radiator.I would maybe hollow out the tanks and find a way to cover top and bottom.My bottom tank has a large hole to big to fix and trust it.

good evening xpkson, do you have a good rad shop close to you? I take older rads from Lincoln welders from the 40's and 50's into my local rad shop and they will often fab up new tanks and tank mounts if one is to badly corroded or rotten.

When restoring a tractor I usually take the radiator to a local radiator repair shop. The owner of the shop I use told me that plans are available for all radiators ever made. He has put new cores in a few for me and I have been surprised how reasonable it was.

Mine wanted $1200.00 to re-core the one in my UB. That ain't happenin'! Unless I find a better deal than that or else a good used one I guess she'll be parked for a while.

I do have one near me at an area called the Buck.The core is in bad shape also.There isn't much of a radiator to work with.That is why I am rigging it to hear it run.

You can also source a used rad from a G705,706,707,708. All the same.

I had my UB radiator recorded last year for $300. Seems a little high to me.

I would certainly like to talk to your radiator man. I have been looking for years for a radiator for my MOTRAC.

Please send me an e-mail
