Another product that will work is Quick Steel. It can be bought in the automotive section at Wally World for about $4. a tube/stick. The whole side split on the radiator of my '88 Pony about a week ago, I grinded it to roughen it up and put it over the split, lapping over about an inch on each side of the split and it works great. This it the second radiator I've fixed using this product. The other one was for a friend several years ago and as far as I know it is still holding. Just be sure to give it plenty of time to set up before putting pressure on the system.

Thanks for the feedback - now I know to look for that on my Escorts. I now have three LX's, all 2nd generation.
One of my favorite repair materials is the RTV gasket maker. I used 'ultra-black' more than the other kinds.
