My new radiator has two metal holes (Transmission or Engine Oil Cooler Line Connections) that my old one didn't, why?
If your vehicle has a standard transmission, your old radiator will not have a cooler in it. Most new radiators are made as a universal fit. These connections are no problem as the cooler is a sealed unit inside the radiator. Even if you don't plug them, they will not leak! Some vehicles are also made with an engine oil cooler at the opposite end which is made the same way.
Do you guarantee your radiators?

Can you custom build radiators, or customize one that I found?
Absolutely! All of our all-aluminum radiators can be modified if you need an extra neck added, or a neck moved, or even a new bracket welded on! We can also custom build radiators from brass and copper if you provide us with all of the necessary information.
How long does an install take?
We usually need your vehicle 3-4 hours on average depending on the vehicle. This includes filling it and running it. However, it depends on the type of vehicle you have.
Do you test drive the vehicle after it is worked on?
No. We do not test drive anything for liability reasons. However, we do run the vehicle, making sure there are no leaks and that the fans and thermostat kick in.
Do you repair fuel tanks?
Yes! We repair fuel tanks everyday that consist of rust holes, physical damage, or even re-soldering a filler neck! We can repair holes by placing patches over the hole with either solder or weld. Rust can be removed by having the tank lined.
What does having a tank "Lined" consist of?
Lining a tank is putting an extra layer of protection inside the tank, usually to prevent rust. When a fuel tank gets rust inside of it, the rust cannot be stopped unless a liner is put in it. Before lining, the tank is cleaned out, treated with acid to remove rust, dried out and then lined. If desired, the tank can also have an exterior liner added for extra protection.
