New install of Koyo alum radiator and this happens ..

I assumed quality of the new V core was good and bought based on reviews. I hope this is isolated to just this one.

Anything can happen, man.

Sketchy 100 dollar eBay cores are used in spec miata cars, last forever, work great.
Then some man buys reputable rad, for a lot more, leaks immediately

Really just seems like poor luck, though.

While paying for a Koyo, I wouldn't want to repair it myself, and would just go with an exchange-- but I'm curious, how WOULD it be repaired? Especially since it's not close to an endtank?

Took it to a radiator shop - they don't weld aluminum on the sensitive spots as fins will be damaged. They now use industrial epoxy. I was told it will hold quote ..."forever". They provide 90 day warranty. The epoxy cures for 48 hours and i can't pick it up until they test the radiator post repair.

Working on the warranty claim as well. Thanks all.

I mean, I know people repair miata cranks with overpowered glue, but they're doing that with alum rads now?
That's coo

However, if you've gone and repaired it, doesn't that go and make the warranty kinda void now, since you've taken it to a 3rd party?
