well i am going to get a new one old one is leaking and not in the best condition and i think its blocked..

well anyway when i took the hoses off there is a heap of white build up of some sort.. what is it and will a radiator flush help get rid of it, as i would think there would be build up in the block so before i replace the hoses and radiator and water pump i wanna try and clean in there.

lastly

which radiator should i get any of the ebay ones ok?

Radiators from REPCO etc aren't much more expensive....I'd get one from them cos if there is a problem it's not as big a hassle to get the problem fixed. As for the white stuff generally thats from incorrect or no coolant being used. Put some radiator flush through and run for a week or so with just straight water then drain and put good quality (and the correct amount of) coolant in.

there is a bloke on ebay in adelaide, the radiator warehouse i think he calls himself. i got a adrad 1 from him for $170 i think it was. it has 1 piece end tanks so it shouldnt split like factory 1s. try him he was very helpful and cheap postage.

Supply only!! or Supply and fitted?

If thats just too supply you are definitely getting ripped. A mate had a new one fitted, system flushed & new coolant for $330.
