    so I'm stuck here with a 2 row radiator, that won't keep up when the truck is under load. currently have a pass side fill and port on the bottom, drivers port on top, Will a radiator out of a diesel cucv (mid 80's) fit and work? Don't mind fabbing some brackets if I have to just need a bigger radiator on the real cheap.

    I tried to put the rad out of a 2nd gen gasser in my 72 and it was 3 inches too talll and wide, the width was ok but unless you want to do some cutting its too tall.
