Default Radiator repair shop near Venice, Florida

Does anyone know of a reliable radiator repair shop near Venice Florida? Looks like mine will need to come out for a leaking tube caused by an errant fan blade.

Thanks for that input. Someone local suggested a fellow right here in Venice. If he doesn't work out I'll call Ron.

See if they will remove the top tank and rod it out. I bet they won’t. No one wants to mess with that top tank.

I took my stock 28 radiator to Ron and he said it had too many pin holes for him to fix that i'd be in just as much money for a nice solid used one or new one.
He's done a bunch of Model A radiators over the years and said if he could have fixed mine and stood behind the repair he would have but mine was too far gone.
