Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

I tried to deal with an old radiator for years. Multiple cleanings and even a water pump - nothing worked until I got a new radiator.
A new one is worth every penny, even if it is lot of pennies.

Re: Model A motors

There has to be good parts - like non rubbing stuff (bell-housing,etc.) - and the blocks, cranks, etc. might be salvageable. The stuck one is most likely stuck in the valve train.

Re: Any good aftermarket headlights ???

Did I miss something?

Although you can't adjust the position of the bulb in the reflector, I thought you could aim the headlamps up/down & left/right by loosening the big nut at the bottom.
