|Jack|| I need to have a new core installed or buy a new
radiator. So far, I can't find a new one and I think I was 'highballed' on a quote to repair.
|Big Dean||Hi Jack
If I remember right the MF235 uses the same radiator as the early MF230 and the early MF245. I have found new radiators for those on the internet for $240 to $290. I have not had a new core put in one since I retired from a MF dealer in 1995 but the best I remember the last one I had done cost about $150 hope this helps some. If I can be of further help email me at email@example.com
|Jack|| Big Dean,
Do you remember the name of the companies you ordered the radiators from? The early 230, 245
MF's, were they gas or diesel? About what year
were they manufactured.
The radiator shop quoted $385.00 to replace
the core. New radiators for the Mf235, 245 run
$199-$225. I ordered a 230 gas and it will fit
but the bottom hose fitting is wrong. It points
to the side and is too close to the suspension.
The old one has a kind of reversed Z cast fitting
that is about 4" over the suspension and points
at the engine.
This old fitting could be soldered to the new
radiator but I wonder if reliability would be lost along with the $65 extra cost.
|Big DEan||Jack working for a dealer we always got any new radiators from Massey Ferguson. Most of the time I just had a new core install at a good radiator shop for about half of the cost of a new one. I would not be afraid to have the hose connection changes by a good radiator shop.
