85 S10 Blazer Radiator Opinion

My Blazer runs a little warm (180 stat) around 195 degrees(mechanical guage). In the summer with the AC on, it would climb to 225+, AC off it would run around 210. I rebuilt the engine and boiled the block and heads myself. I replace the stat every year as PM. The radiator appears in good shape, new fan clutch, appropriate fan, new condensor. My question is, is it worth it to spend $45 and have the radiator boiled or should I just purchase a new one?

Have it boiled out and if that reveals it's wiped, a new one is like 125 for that vehicle. My personal opinion? Pitch it if it's questionable. It could ruin all the work you did.

My 2 cents Purchase a new radiator, most come with lifetime warrantys now. You might be lucky to get 90 days warranty out of the local boil job.
