Speaking for myself, I would always be curious to understand why it has failed.  I would strip it right down and apply air pressure to the oil side whilst immersing it in water to look for any bubbles. I find it very hard to understand why a heat exchanger should fail, assuming that it is made of copper and / cuprous alloys.  Does anyone know exactly causes them to fail?

My understanding is that they corrode. I am going to test to see if this is the problem. The Fox sat for ten plus years.
