Any reviews on Richard’s aluminum radiator?? It will soon be time for me to work on cooling system... 😬. Richard., if you’re reading., do you have a radiator for a 1969 2000??? I have a solex U20.
Yes but just sold the last one, when do you need one.
But you need to be sure you have the late style steering box.
68-69 with the early steering box is in stock.

How can you tell? I'll send you a photo. The steering box looks kinda big. How has your radiators been holding temp? Any feed back on the ones you have sold? I'm interested on your radiators due to the weight savings....

Your U-joint seems to be the later style 69.5-70.
To be sure on the steering house itself, check the top cover/lid; it should be round (early style looks more like a "B"), also at the side (faced at the front of the car) should be a stanced number or at least a plug for the oil (sometimes mistaken as a grease fitting). Also late style steering boxes come with a late style idler which has a conical shaped top rubber on it.

Early steering boxes have a drain plug on the side, late steering box have no drain plug.
