Repairing a radiator (recore) on a
1950 John Deere Model B
at Rusty Bucks Ranch LLC
You have a leaky radiator core on your John Deere Model B.
Here's how to re-core it and stop that leak.
Begin by removing the bolts and/or nuts along the top and bottom of the core
Now, you want to remove the sides from your core. Once the top and bottom tanks are
removed, it will be as simple as pulling them away from the core. Use a rubber mallet and gently
help them if they are stuck. You won't hurt them, and you are replacing the old core anyway.
This is how your top and bottom tanks will like like upon removal.
The following photo(s) show the sides coming away from the core.
Looking at the core after all is dis-assembled.
We keep our
simple, labor plus
parts & material.  
In most cases we
will not bid a job,
however, we will
offer the best
estimate we can
but it will only be
an estimate.

When you give a
firm bid for doing
any type of repair
or service on this
type of
equipment, you
must have a built
in cushion to
cover any
unexpected
problems that
might arise.  If no
problems arise,
the bidder comes
out ahead and
the customer
loses, however, if
major problems
arise the bidder
loses. Our policy
is made to be fair
for both parties
concerned.
After a project
has been started
and if any
unexpected major
problems should
arise, the
customer is
always notified
before work
continues. We do
our best to keep
our customers
informed.  When
we go to settle an
account, we do
not like
unexpected
surprises just as
much as the
customer.

We can/will stop
the restoration
process at any
time per the
customers
request. Should
unexpected
hardships occur,
you are not
locked in to finish
to completion any
project that is
underway. We
recognize that
daily life brings
unexpected
obstacles along
the way. We can
delay or stop our
services at your
request should
you find yourself
in a difficult spot.

After 60 years, these old radiator cores can be pretty rough looking.

Re-assemble in reverse order. Don't forger the new gaskets.
We used a new radiator hardware kit for re-assembly which provided all new bolts, nuts, etc.
