If it's leaking from the fins of the radiator. Replacement is what needs to be done. If it's leaking from a neck or the sides where you have solid metal... You could try & braise the leak closed& then pressure test it.....But if that doesn't work you'll have to replace it anyhow...

Yeah, it really does depend on where it is leaking, and why. If the radiator is old and worn out, it will certainly be less repairable than something newer. There are repair options, recore options and new radiator options. Just depends.

You really want to get an aluminum radiator to replace the old copper pos. But for now you can get buy with JB Weld as long as you have a full day to let it cure and can access the leak.

Check out Champion Radiators on Ebay. Give them the dimensions of your radiator and they will make an aluminum rad for just over $200. I love mine.

Good luck
