hey my father and uncle both have x-18's and one has a bad radiator and i am looking for a new one. I am just wondering if anyone out here has any leads besides custom or from predator direct. Only because i have been calling the dealer for two days with no luck of anyone calling back.

thanks for the help

Pull some measurements off the existing radiator. If its aluminum check summit/jegs for one. And if its a stock style radiator maybe ebay or a local parts house. The hardest thing will be determining what the unit is designed to fit, once you know that, its as easy as Google.

Eamon is usually pretty good about returning calls.
But, you may be able to order it online... http://www.predatoroffroadparts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=RadComp

I am curious about what's wrong with the radiator. Most things can be repaired by a local radiator shop...

As an alternative to what's installed...would this work for you ?

My father is waiting for Eamon to call back, as far as what is wrong the radiator is leaking at all four corners and the radiator shop could not fix, I assume that is because there is thin flat aluminum welded to the top and bottom of the radiator and it looks like you would have to cut all the welds, remove the two flat strips do the repair to the tank or core whatever is leaking and then reassemble and weld it back together.

Thanks for the help guys I will probably just wait for a call back and if not I will go the custom route and take some measurements.

As for the civic radiators i am going to get a direct replacment and the size is roughly 14" x 36", so i don't think those will work for me but thanks for the reply

If I talk to him, I'll be sure to pass along that you're trying to get ahold of him. If you can shoot me a PM with the customers name, that'll help.

You might also try contacting John Bishop on gd.com. He just swapped put his stock radiator for a larger one when he swapped in an LS1. Anyhow, he may have the stock radiator available for sale.....
