FL 120 heat exchanger rebuildable?

Can these units be rebuilt or do they go to the scrap heap?

Yes in some cases they can be rebuilt. And there is nothing wrong with a properly rebuilt unit.

Greetings,
We bought a new one and had the old one repaired and it's now a spare.

Greetings,
Mr. M. sorry to hear of your accident. Speedy recovery. I think the re builder was just a rad shop with a reputation of repairing all types of heat exchangers.
