Boiling / dipping radiator?

Recommended Posts

Any idea what it costs to have a radiator boiled/ or dipped? I have a compact tractor radiator that’s not cooling and after 20 minutes or so it will overheat. I’m not 100% sure it’s in the radiator but I’m thinking it’s probably going to have to be boiled or swapped out with a rebuild/ remanufactured one.

It's tough to find anyone that does it here in Southern Wisconsin.  I hauled my WD-9 radiator 3 hours north to Wausau to someone that actually boiled it out.

Around here all they do is recore them now.

Success is sweet! 
I got the radiator recored and back in. Mowed tall grass with it for an hour or so and it didn’t overheat. One more project off my list!

‘87 Caseih 255 compact.

I would love to find a hydraulic remote kit to put on it as it’s basically useless without  any remotes.

I put a used radiator in a 245 utility several months ago. The one in it was past repair and rotten. That sucker was $500-used- with a one year warranty. No new ones to be found- checked everywhere I knew. Good luck.

This was $350(?) recored.

When I looked before I saw they weren’t available anywhere. I think new price would have been close to $900!! That’s a lot for such a small radiator!
