My Radiator is in need of replacement or repair. Before I send it out and have it recored does anyone know of any companies that make them for a 56 Windsor, I do not want China garbage off eBay.

You can get new brass radiators, but they won't look the same. It's best to do a recore with your original top tank, if someone can do that. I've had a lot of trouble finding anyone willing and able around me, but there are still places around the country that can do it. Because of my difficulties, I usually revert to an aluminum radiator, and paint the top tank & brackets black. Performance wise, it's much better, and much cheaper. There are aluminum radiators that have rounded top tanks so they don't look so out of place.
