TR2/3/3A What is my radiator made of? Brass?


Senior Member
Hey I'm going to solder a tiny hole on my radiator it is the original radiator on my tr3a what is it made of? Brass, copper or steel?

On my TR6--and I'd wager the TR3 is the same--copper core and brass tanks.

Did you put the original core back in?

You really need to take it to a radiator shop and have them test it for leaks. Much easier to fix now than later. If you can, take it to a small shop rather than a big box national radiator company. My experience is that the smaller shop will work with you and it is usuallu a pleasant experience

Good luck, Tinkerman

John, It appears that there is nothing you can't do, and to the very highest of standards. Wonderful documentation to boot. Tom
