All Aluminum Radiator Designed For Farmall M Tractors
Ron Beaty, 13921 W. St. Rd. 38, Hagerstown, Ind. 47346 (ph 765 489-6321): "We make an all-aluminum radiator that's specifically designed for Farmall M tractors. It weighs about 45 lbs. less than the tractor's original radiator, which makes a big difference to anyone who participates in antique tractor pulls. The original radiator core weighs almost 60 lbs. with brackets, whereas our aluminum radiator weighs only 14.7 lbs. The reduced weight helps get the tractor down to the lowest weight class allowed, which is 4,500 lbs.
  "We use a process called controlled atmosphere brazing to make the radiator. It sells for $450 plus S&H. Another advantage is that it won't rust out. Also, aluminum is a better heat reducer. We also plan to soon offer aluminum radiators designed for Oliver 88 tractors and also Moline tractors."
