Reconditioning a1970 Healey Sprite Mk4 radiator

Just a few hours to turn back the years for this Healey Sprite Mk4 radiator.




  This radiator was recently sent to us at Motoradsonline by one of our online customers for a full overhaul. The core of the old unit, seen top left, was a  bit old and tired with some of the fins beginning to deteriorate, but the basic parts were still in very good condition.
  The tanks were removed from the old core and all of the component parts were cleaned back to bare metal.
  The side by side view of the header plates shows how the old core, still smoking from the strip down, had several blocked tubes.
  The component parts were then soldered back together, pressure tested and given a fresh coat of paint.

  Within the space of a few hours this radiator was back to performing like new and we have another satisfied customer. If you have a Healey radiator you want us to recore or you need a heater matrix for a Healey Sprite you can click one of the links above to our website or give us a call during work hours on 01527 65182
