Radiator

I am finally getting around to replacing my radiator and got quoted a price of 395.00 - 425.00 from radiator.com. Does this sound about right? Can ours be rebuilt / refurbished. If so what is a ballpark on getting it spruced up? Just wondering before I start calling radiator shops here in town.
Right now mine just has a small leak in one location, the fins are pretty beat up on it, and more to the point it looks like a radiator with 326K behind it.
Thanks,
Craig

I guess the price is the same anyway. Here is another place to look at. About the same price: Powerstrokeshop.com

Call a local rad shop. They will be able to rebuild yours way cheaper than new and if something goes wrong you have a local company to deal with and not some place across the US. Just my .02.

sorry to break in,I'm a new member,for a few months now I have chimed in on discussions but can't figure out how to post a new thread,i have a problem with an aftermarket block heater that is mounted in the freeze plug hole above the oil filter,won't stop leaking.So I ordred a new one from the Diesel man on line,It dosen't mount in the same hole. The vague instructions claim there is a threaded pipe plug near the front of the motor on passenger side.right! on a 97 F350 the front suspension covers everything ,the only pipie plug I see is above the exhaust manifold,can anyone tell me where the factory block heater mounts on an 97 F-350? I will probably send this thing back.

Thanks for the input fellas. I will start checking prices here in the Dallas area this week. Worst case scenario I'll buckle and get a new one.
Thanks,
Craig

Hey Bucwheat,
Have you taken the inner wheel well lining out to see if there is another location on the block? This is about the only advice I can pass on.

As for posting a new thread.......go up to forums at the top of the page and click on it. It will open a whole list of areas / topics to post. Find the area you need to post in, in this case 94 - 97 Fords click on new thread and go from there.
