    Hi, All-I have been lurking for a number of months and finally took the plunge. I have just returned from So. California with my "new" 1977 308GTB. The only known defect with the car is a small crack on the radiator between the tank and the core. I have already removed the radiator and would like to know if anybody has a recommendation for a radiator shop that can do the job properly the first time. Thank you for any help or recommendations.

    As long as it is being repaired, Carlo would probably recommend you have them cut it open and "rod it out" cleaning all the tubes inside. Then weld it back up. The 308/328 radiators are known to get a considerable amount of build up (plaque?) in the tubes that greatly reduces flow.
