Try rodding out old radiator, then recore if not able to rod out. OEM is much better than any new non-oem I've seen. Look for crack in head between valves. I'd spend the $ to buy a new head from Clearwater, hydraulic non-jet valve model. I'd also pull the balance shafts and check the bearings. New oil pump, too, with a new timing set.
