Default anyone Building an A-V8?

Found this reasonable price for an aluminum radiator for flat head v-8 in a model "A". May be other good stuff at "Ali Express" for the flathead. I buy diesel parts from them. Seems all the parts are direct import from China, But a lot of the things I work on are from there also. Just thought I would pass it along. p.s. be sure to check on the minimum order requirements. They vary from 1 to many. Joe

Price is ok but I would rather support Made In America.

Bought a Chinese rad for my 41 pickup. Works OK with a 7 pound cap. A real bear to mount, nothing like the original. A direct fit American made is worth the extra cost.

Bought an aluminum one from Southern Radiator in Mt. Clements, Michigan. It was a two row claimed to be good for 700 HP. It has worked fine in my flattie around town and on the highway. Reasonably priced also.

The $96 radiator costs $92 to ship!!

(My father once told a story of a man who goes to a motel and asks how much it costs to rent a room. "We have a room for $15 and a room for $20," the clerk tells him. "What's the difference between the two rooms?" the man asks. "The $20 room has free TV.")
