Question Radiator Question

I took off the hose that goes from the left bottom of the radiator back to the coolant pump, the pipe leading out of the radiator is an oval shape, not round, and above the ring for the gasket to seal the pipe is indented about 1/8th of an inch.

I can't seem to find a picture of the stock radiator, is this normal or is this damage?

I'll put a picture up when I get home.

Sorry for no pictures, life is hectic. I'm going to call the local metalshop and see what they'd charge to straighten out the dent. I've had a few things repaired by them and they've always been helpful.

If they can't fix it I'll send you a PM about the radiator.

It's damage, it should look like this (pics from when I was painting my rad - ignore the corrosion ).
