As others said, what poked a hole in the radiator? Determine exactly where the unit is leaking from. Is it the neck, side, or the fin area? My advice is to have the radiator taken to a shop, get boiled, and soldered up. Rebuilding/restoring OEM parts are the first choice for these old tractors. Many new aftermarket parts are noted for unreliable or lack of quality control and radiators are often known for poor fitting. I had an aftermarket Cheena radiator once for my 8N and the neck was too short and scraped the hood when cap was put on. If leak is not severe, you could try oatmeal or BARSLEAK in the system. A shop can clean, test, and repair the radiator otherwise. Removing it is time consuming as hood, doglegs, hoses, and grille have to be removed first. The radiator has a petcock drain on lower unit and needs to be drained first.
