Default FC Radiator

I just had the radiator in my FC fixed for the second time in two years. The shop said the top tank was weak. I am wondering if it is even possible to find a new radiator for the old FC? I am sure they could find a core, but the tank with matching connections is another story. Anyone out there have a BB or OEM part number?

Gardner,

Sorry to hear about your radiator.

I wonder if the BB school bus division would be able to assist? I'm told the chassis - drive line of our old FCs came off the school bus production line.

Also,

I see Blue Bird Bus radiators listed on ebay and wonder if any of these could work.

Keep us posted.

Gardner,i junked out a late model FC school bus and the rad looked just like the rad in the 87-89 FC wanderlodge.
The difference between the non-intercooled FC and the intercooled FC rad. is two "dents" in the top tank for the Air cooler hoses.
The one i had i sold to my buddy in Daytona and he put it in an International truck,it fit nicely.
Gardner,call Mike H.,he bought one for his FC when he put the charge air cooler in it.

Bill, Randy,
Thanks for the info. I spoke to Steve Pappas and he knows a shop that seems to be capable of going further than most shops. I will do some checking. Perhaps they can fashon a tank top.

Meanwhile I will check with Mike H.
