Currently the radiators are quite cheap at ford. some of the aftermarket ones don't have drain plugs in them.

You don't really need the drain plug, the bottom hose works just as well.


New Natrad radiators are around $200

Yeah, just don't get the ebay aluminium one's.

The core started leaking on mine after a few months, and the aluminium fins are waaaay too easy to bend.
