I replaced my 8N radiator about 20 years ago. Probably got it from Just 8N’s or Yesterdays Tractors. It fit fine and has held up to brush hoggin CRP land in Missouri July and August heat. Don’t know about the quality of todays offerings but am about to find out. Recently bought a 1956 Ford 860. Took the radiator to a professional service for cleaning and they pronounced it D.O.A. Both of the places they send them to for repair/re-core we’re backed up for months and were reluctant to quote a firm price. I just put in a new one advertised as “restoration quality” from Dennis Carpenter. It fit perfectly with some tweaking to the shroud. Also installed all new hoses, thermostats and pads in both cases, just because.
