Default Rumely 25-40X Restoration, need parts

My Dad and I are restoring my grandpa's 25-40X and I am looking for any help I can get. I need a few radiator panels, gaskets, and a few other misc parts. If anyone could point me in the right direction or to someone that could help I would greatly appreciate it.

In the, former "Rumely Collectors News", NOW published as "IRON AGE" there was an advertiser, Murray Carlson who was listed as living in Wisconsin but with a Minnesota phone number....... .......who had M (or X) cooler panels advertised for YEARS.
I don't see his ad in the latest issue but it still might be worth a shot? The price was right......$35 a pop I think.
Section gaskets are readily available from Odie's Collectibles.......check the Iron Age website.......

We just got back from the Austin Manitoba show where we talked to Odie and got all the gaskets we need but still on the hunt for those rad panels. I don't know the serial number off the top of my head but I think its in the 1800's. I just subscribed to that magazine but haven't got it yet. We got a few leads at the show as well. My dad stayed today to watch the 65 bottom plow attempt. I think they might have got rained out. Thanks for your help

I'll sift through some back issues and PM Carlson's contact details.
There was another source too......quite a bit more expensive but a source at least.

I gave someone the dimensions a while ago but can't findthem now. I have zero use for them so let me know the width and height and I will see if what I have is right.

Not sure how the radiator panels are assembled. If I have the right size I would need to know how to take it apart to get them to you.

There are two long through bolts that go crossway through the entire cooler. They are threaded into the inlet and outlet castings.
After those bolts are taken out the sheet metal can be removed and the entire thing can be separated, panel by panel.
I believe the M and X have 32 sections.

Alright I finally got a chance to go and measure those rad panels and get the serial number. The rad panels are 21 7/8" x 19 3/8" and the serial number is 1864. I've also got a lead on a W, I've seen a couple restored ones sell for about 13,000 what do you think a nice original running W is worth?
