Triumph Stag radiator recore

Another Triumph Stag back on the road with no overheating problems


  This is just one of many Triumph Stag radiators we have reconditioned this year. The old one was typical of many we see with a tired looking core, partial blockage and a corroded steel pipe.
  First job was to strip it down to all of its component parts and clean them back to bare metal. Any dents or splits can be easily treated at this stage.
  The most important part of the rebuild is the core, mainly because the main worry for all Stag owners is overheating. The core we use has been tried and tested by Stag owners and has always performed well.
 The core has three rows of water tubes as opposed to the 4 rows in the original, these tubes being much closer together and the rows staggered to give the maximum cooling. The actual tubes are also larger giving a good flow and less chance of future blockage. The fin pitch is set to give the best airflow to cooling ratio. In all this core is about as efficient as it can be for its size.
 Once soldered back together the radiator gets a thorough test before a visit to the spray shop and being returned to the customer.

We are also able to offer a heater matrix for the Stag and it will be available in our heater matrix section very soon
