I had my 1800 radiator re-cored a few months ago and it was not not awful.

Really sorry about this setback :(

Probably unless there’s a big difference in the distance between the thermostat housing and radiator, but I bet there’s really not.

If I ever get around to putting in a nice aluminum one then I’ll give you the one from my 142 but it would definitely need to be boiled.

Andrew, I appreciate the offer. Let me stew on things tonight and I'll shoot you a PM in the morning. Kyle also reached out about his old 122 rad.

The quote I got at home was in the neighborhood of $350 for a recore, and like $200 for a pressure test and reseal.

This is my theory as well.
