M38a1 Radiator Repair or Recore in DFW, TX Area

Post by Restomod50 » Tue Nov 15, 2022 3:41 pm

I live in DFW area of TX.

Is there any reputable place that does a M38a1 Radiator Recore/Repair that is in or around the DFW area?
OR
Does anyone have on they want to part with.

Mine unfortunately has the struts that mount to the frame, that's the main reason I would like to find someone that can repair/recore it.

I took it to a radiator shop and they wanted $300 to repair it, with a warranty of only the areas that they repaired.
I guess I need recommendations for some good alternatives for radiator for replacements.

I have an M38A1 radiator. Not sure what you mean about the attachment points ( I am a MB guy ). It was holding water when I took the jeep apart years ago. I would fill it with water and check for no leaks if you want it. $100 - problem is distance / shipping. It will be after New Years before I can look at it. Let me know your thoughts by PM.
