Vintage Car Radiators
Northern Radiators go back quite some time…….established in 1920. We were the original radiator manufacturer for Scott Motorcycles.
Our vintage and classic division have worked on hundreds of radiators over the years, we know how to put them right!
Out time served staff have the expertise and skills and offer the following services.
A pressure test will reveal any leaks in the core or tanks of the radiator.
A flow test will determine the extent of any internal blockage to the tubes.
After testing we will contact you with our findings and recommendations without any obligation.
Internal blockages may be removed with a chemical clean. Badly blocked cores will require a replacement.
External blockage in the core can be removed with steam cleaning
We are able to repair many leaking radiators, tube leaks, core leaks, tank leaks and fitting leaks. We use many repair techniques depending on the problem.
Some radiators will recondition. We will strip the radiator down and clean all parts. Tubes will be unblocked and tube joints resoldered. Reassembled and tested
We can recore any radiator and offer many different specification of cores
Vintage and Veteran radiators can be recored with the original honeycomb or film cores. Modern high performance cores are offered as a superior cooling alternative to the original. We can talk you through all options for your vehicle. Any price that we quote would include any necessary work to the rest of the radiator, damaged tanks etc.
All recorded radiators are individually inspected and tested prior to spray painting with your choice of matt or gloss radiator black.
We offer free friendly expert advice, feel free to pop in for a cup of tea!
