Old cast iron radiator parts
Hope this is the correct section for this. I purchased a house built in 1890 last year and it has very nice looking huge cast iron hot water radiators that I assume are original that I'm looking to refurbish because they heat the house incredibly well but some of them appear to be developing leaks at some joints and they have about 10 coats of
paint on them. It uses some type of tapered square headed bolts to hold the sections together and what appears to be some type of rubber oring/gasket between the sections. I'm hoping to find out if these parts can still be purchased new or if I have to get creative.
