List,

My '68 289 radiator sprung a leak on the top hose neck. It is the original FOMOCO unit, and it is out of warranty!
Where is a good shop that can repair this leak and/or rebuild the unit without losing the integrity of the original radiator? I am in Barrington!

thanks!

just an interesting question? did you have the flexable hose on your radiator. danny said these can break the neck off your radiator. time to change hoses also. dave

Nope, I have repro-FOMOCO hoses from NPD on the car. The neck just gave out to old age. Still don't have a shop to fix!
