Berkshire Radiator

Had a foreign object go through my Berkshire radiator. I am now getting a new one. Anyone done this before? I am waiting on the quote and wondering what to expect. I know it will not be cheep.

Has to be rear, no Berks with side radiators.

Did you back into something or did something run into you? And I believe you are right in assuming that it won't be a cheap fix.

A friend with a Monaco side radiator replaced his at a cost of 6000.00. Hope yours isn't that bad Silver.

The electric fan clutch bracket broke and I think a piece of it was blown through the radiator.

Hay Phil,

You might want to talk to FL about that. I think they have a known issue with 4 bolt fan mounts.

Not sure how big the hole is. I've had our radiator shop repair some seriously damaged radiators on our stationary motors.
