The radiator in my 77 FJ40 is leaking pretty bad
Im trying to decide if i should have it fixed/soldered or just break down and get a new one.
Anybody know where to get radiators cheap?
Also, what all different radiators has everyone put into a FJ40
for whatever reason - cause it was cheap, it worked better, etc.
Im definately willing to try something different if it will work

Oh - I am running a stock 2F
Thanks

My radiator's a Performance Radiator 4 core, works great, I think I paid about 300 for it, and they had it in stock.

I picked up a radiator for my fj45 w/2f last summer from 1 800 Radiator, but the same company goes by Radiator.com I think.

Paid $99+12 shiping(was here in 2-3 days), made by Samsung, works fine. But compared to a OEM radiator its VERY light, maybe 10lbs vrs 20+ for OEM.

If possible I would get the OEM rad rebuilt, recored...whatever as it just feels better than a 10lb rad.

i had mine rewelded along the top, and three days later, it developed a leak in a different portion of the radiator.:rolleyes:
i guess the leak in the top was acting as a pressure valve to keep the column from losing fluid. When i had it out, i found out it had been repaired *twice* prior.:mad: oh well.. i ended up buying a CCOT stainless steel ($200) after i spent $60 to repair the old one.:D :D
and no complaints about the CCOT one. fit just fine.
