    what subject asks,
    been coming across short radiator trucks or parts lately, even 1 tons with 350 in them, odd.. GM was mixed up for a few years in 77-79 i believe. or ran out of large radiators ?


    just checking before scrapping.

    thanks

    Might make it easier to mount electric fans? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Can't really see a reason for the short radiator...I'd rather have a tall 2 core than a short 3 core.

    It doesn't leak and you're going to scrap it? Send it to me, me and my friends will use it for SOME creation.

    None leak? How much are they worth to you? For that many (and a 4 core) I wouldn't have a problem coming down to get it.

    I'll talk to my buddies. They really won't fit any of my stuff, but my buddies are always building weird stuff and radiators would be great for them.

    We'd just use them for one of the toyotas or the scout with Chevy drivetrain or for the trucks that only leave the yard to go 4 wheeling.
