'53 F100 Radiator Leak

I have a '53 F100 with a 4 row radiator. The top tank is leaking at the seam. This is an all-brass replacement radiator that I installed when I restored this truck. Years ago, I worked in a radiator shop, where they repaired leaks of this type. I seem to recall that some radiators have an inverted seam, and cannot be repaired, while installed.

Are there still radiator shops around that repair radiators? Can this be repaired on the truck?
