A true RED RYDER BB Gun to hang on the wall of my Van I named.......................... RED RYDER....Many years ago my grandfather had a Red Trailer with ballon tires on it and used to fill it with hay and use to pull all the grand kids around with it behind his farm tractor it was named Red Ryder from the factory and had decals to match also and that name has always stuck with me.................

NO fix a flat in there I looked.lol!. It probley would have sealed it up!!!!! I guess the plan for now is clean and paint the heater assembly and bring the core to the radiator shop I called them today and they said bring it down and they can measure it and install a new core with my tanks for about $50-$60 dollars hopefully I can get it fixed locally. This radiator shop is one of the oldest in the area and has been in the same location since the 50s and they do a lot of vintage and custom stuff including semi''s and farm tractors if it has a radiator they can fix it or build another one.!!!!!!!!!!!
