Hi, Mine has bad ends but I have it sealed up for now and don't want to disturb it. I want another bad one to try my hand at repairing the inlet/outlet pipes.

Well if I cant not find a replacement, then I will take mine to radiator shop and have them braze on new hose-ends. The hose ends on mine are swiss-cheesed, and only have about 1/2 the length left. So not much left to patch. Both entire ends would need to be replaced.

That's what I was going to try doing myself. Maybe soldering on new hose ends?

I doubt a radiator shop would braze it, and if they said they were going to, I'd take it elsewhere. Too much risk of the heat of brazing undoing the solder joints on the internals. Fashion a sleeve or a new neck and solder it.

Dave,

Your correct, solder should have been the word I used instead of braze.

Don't think so. Opposite sides of engine and connections in different locations.
