    Default radiator repair?

    I have a ~28hp diesel tractor and the water pump just let go, nice right. Even better the shaft to the fan broke and it hit the radiator causing it to leak. Anyone know a good local shop that repairs rads? They don't even make them anymore so I can't buy a new one

    Avon Radiator repairs radiators. They are on the corner of Livernois and Auburn. About 1-1/2 miles from the M-59 and Crooks Rd exit....

    If that doesn't work out for you here another. I know of them from years ago before they moved to Sterling Heights. They can actually make you one.

    Superior Radiator in Mt. Clemens, but it's a bit of a hike for you.

    Ahhhhhhh, thanks for the info. I had my last one done several years ago, but I pass there all of the time and see they are open. I wonder how they make money calling themselves Avon Radiator and don't fix them anymore?

    Wanted to give an update. Ray closed off a few of the smashed core lines and fixed the rest of it up. Pressure tested it and had it back to me the following Monday. Charged me about $200 and its held up great in the tractor since then.
