Old Boot's radiator was last rebuilt after the crash some 20 years ago, with a honeycomb matrix which at first worked well but gradually has become more clogged until it has become impossible.  Vintage Radiator Co said "nearer 2000 than 1000" ( and, by past experience, meant nearer 4000 than 3000).   Now, I have an original radiator which consists of some 49 vertical 5mm tubes in a finny matrix with a faux honeycomb on the front, something that VRC can not do so I consulted Mr Google thinking to fit a modern core.  I came up with Cumbria Radiators Ltd who are some 20 miles away from me and who fitted a modern vertical tube core matrix with room at the front for a faux matrix for the grand sum of 624 all in.   It looks OK as it is but I am on the track of a honeycomb film to go on top (more later perhaps).
There is now only one problem.
With 2/3 of the core blanked off so far I still cannot get the engine temperature above 140 F.      A problem I am delighted to have!
