    Lightbulb Cracked Radiator

    We have a cracked radiator and researched solutions to fix it rather than replace it. We found a product that solders the crack. Has anyone had any experience with a similar solution?

    Some cracks can be repaired, depending on: the size of the crack, the material your radiator is made from, the location of the crack, the surroundings of the crack, the age of the radiator.

    How good of a repair can you get? that's is an unknown.

    Just wondering why you want to repair rather than replace.

    If it's cast iron I would say the main reason would be the cost. For replacement I would check the salvage yards.
