I had a healey radiator recored about a year ago. I took it to a shop that
recores highway trucks and industrial radiators as automotive shops don't
seem to do this type of work anymore. Once you find a shop that can do the
work discuss the make up of the core they can provide. The number of cooling
fins per inch is about 12 but check your core and there should be at least 4
rows of tubes. If you can increase the number rows of tubes to 5 it mat
provide additional cooling. The top tank, bottom tank and side should be
The finished product should be painted and pressured tested before it is
returned to you.
