Two of our OILCOOLERS had damage and leaked. We got 'em to F. Atlee Dodge (Sir 'is pictured above), where his crew welded them up, in no time, at a very nice price. Workmanship is so superb, You have to see it! For any kind of welding or part production problem, may it seem unsolveable, contact his company! Our very serious special thanks to

The very nicely repaired Oilcooler installed in right wing of N8501W Boxcar, prior to the reattachment of the sheet metal fairings in summer 2003. Note the old dents from flying through heavy hail, on the very soft skin around the air intake for the oil cooler, on the left. This skin is a easy-er weldable alloy, but quite butter soft.
