Keeping Old Radiators - How To Prevent Them From Rusting

Postby Rushty » Sat Oct 05, 2013 5:22 pm

I have half a dozen radiators that I just disconnected and would like to re-use but they wont be required for 6 months. Will they rust inside beyond being re-usable or is there some way I can keep them from rusting up inside until I am ready for them?

I suppose you could turn them upside down and fill them with a water/inhibitor mixture, and cap the ends.
