Do any of you have experience with radiator repair shops around Tulsa? I’d like to have the original radiator in an older vehicle cleaned and repaired. I’m sure that I could order a replacement cheaper, but I’d like to see if the old one can be fixed.

Tulsa Radiator did a heater core on a 55 F100 for me but that was about 25 years ago. There was a guy who did a desoto radiator on 11th about a two years ago and although the job was acceptable im pretty sure he is running a drug den or theft ring out of the place.

Not a ton of help but its what I got

I've used Midwest Radiator to repair an old ford tractor radiator. The cap neck broke off and they brazed a new one. I had them clean the radiator as well. They did a great job. From the looks of the place, I think they've been around for a hundred years. I would use them again.


They did the work cheaper than I could be a chymese replacement. I wanted to keep the original radiator either way.

Plus 1 for these guys. They've done heater cores as well as radiators for me.

Update: I don’t think Midwest is open any longer. Their location listed on the website is for sale. I drove out there without calling ahead like a dummy.

I decided to roll the dice and take it to Broken Arrow Radiator and Muffler. The gentleman that does the radiator repairs is in his 80s and seems to know his stuff. I’ll know more when I get the radiator back and give another update in a few days.
