Default Are used radiator cores worth anything?

It's from a '92 Legacy SS (the one I sold). One of the plastic endtakes are cracked but the core is good as far as I know.

depends what it is made out of....
aluminum radiators usually will yield 20-30 bucks at a scrap place...

you can have the endcap replaced pretty easily. There's a guy at 40th street and university that I had build me a radiator for my small blocked s-10, using the specific endtanks I needed to clear my core support.

you could probably give it to barry and he might have a rad with a bad core that could donate an endtank.

i thought you couldnt repair radiators with plastic endtanks once the plastic was cracked. or at least that was the case 20 years ago.

probably on older very thin single core units you cant, it takes a bit of force to hold the tanks on while the tabs are bent down.

as much as I don't want to hassle with it, it may be worth looking into and using this core as the ginuea pig. Happen to know his number or shop name, J?

Almost positive that its these guys. They can order rads cheap too or have custom built all aluminum ones to spec.
