  • Just 8Ns has ones that will fit correctly. Amazon also has a number of replacement radiators that will cost less but you may have to mess with it some to get a good fit.

  • Thanks Ed, I ordered one from j8n's shortly after your post. That hood wasn't the easiest thing to get off. I watched a utube video after I took it off to see what I was doing wrong and that guy had as much trouble as I did....funny. Seems the secret is to raise the front of the hood and then push back toward the steering wheel to unhitch it....I could be wrong.

  • They can be a handful, literally. The first time I removed mine, I just manhandled it and it kind of manhandled me. Failing to drain a half-tank of gas made it even more awkward. After that, I used a pulley I attached to a ceiling joist and had my wife do the lifting while I did the maneuvering. And, I emptied the gas tank every time. That made it less of a hassle.

  • Got the radiator on yesterday. The two bolts didn't line up with the holes, about a 1/4in. off, with the help of a hack saw and a file went on. Other than getting that nut on the last bolt on the left side of the dash it wasn't to bad. Hope this one lasts another 75 years. Thanks

  • Bought a radiator for my 800 from Amazon. Bought a mid priced one. I have had it a year or so. It fit perfectly and done a great job.

  • The bigger secret is to have a newer machine with a FEL and some straps.
