    What are you looking for?? I used a set of Dynomax on my old 84, fit with no problems, had to lift the pass side to get them on IIRC. I used stock parts on mine, fuel/water pump etc.

    Truck had a new radiator in it, but I never really drove it after I put the motor in. Just up and down the road, regrooving the tires :) But IIRC it was a 4 core that I got the parts store.
