A radiator shop will recore it for you using your old tanks. Lizzies was done a few years back it was about $350, If I remember right one from a tractor was close to the size.

And if anyone has a second one, I'll happily purchase that one!

Sorry I can't help, Shrek has a Bellett radiator wedged into a Wasp frame. It's doing the job (now its cleaned out & soldered up) , but it would be good to have the right one.
I've had a wrecking yard browse, and the nearest looking ones were from early Galants and Lancers, but only 2-core. Perhaps a radiator place could find something the right dimensions?

Cheers, Matt.

Just wondering if one of the Wasp owners out there would be able to photograph the radiator and give me the dimensions as I may try and match it up.
Help is greatly appreciated
