I had a big leak problem with the SCOTT IS BORN project, it came with a shop soiled but apparently new radiator as it still had blanks soldered over the pipes from leak testing, but upon filling, it leaked like a colander. when I took it to a local specialist, he was of the opinion that residual flux had, over the years, eaten away the film core, and was not repairable. I obtained a couple of quotes for re-core, one was £600 plus vat and another was £700 plus vat, and I would still have tired plating, so it was no contest, ring Graham Moag and order a new one.
