I just got back into town but last time I saw the car the new radiator was in. Don't know if they cranked it or not. The shop it's in right now is going to need a few days of sunshine before it can be driven out. It's been pretty wet here the last few days.
Just got out of the Chevelle after riding in it long enough to know it is fixed. It is cooling going down the road just like it is supposed to. I think the problem was that debris had stopped the other radiator up even though it had been flushed several times. It should drive anywhere he wants to go now. It did have me scratching my head though for a while.
