    Hmmmm

    If you still have the diesel you might try measureing one from a 69-76 rwd cadillac as they have the proper fittings for the heater return and might be the same size. I would measure one but both of mine are in storage 60 miles away...sorry

    We use to get a 10% discount at radiator.com, I don't know if that's still valid or not. You need to call them for the discount, not over the net.

    I got a 4 core radiator for a 84 k20 from Advance Auto a few months ago for $180.00 with a lifetime warranty...... I wouldn't buy a radiator on the net just for warranty purposes..... Think about it if your radiator does happen to quit it would be a pain to ship it across the country to get a replacement.....

    I had one bust open on me a couple of years ago on Christmas Eve while doing some shopping so I pulled it out on the side of the road while waiting for the wife to pick me up...... She drove me over to the parts store and they replaced it no questions asked..... So my point being in less then 2 hours I had a new one and continued shopping...... Much better then having to tow the truck and ship the radiator back and wait for them to replace it while your vehicle is out of commision..... Just something to think about :)

    Kragen 4 core radiator for $160, and has a lifetime warranty. It is a pretty well made radiator too. Havent had any problems so far, been in my truck going on 2 1/2 years. Still looks like new.

    That's because the diesel radiator is nearly as wide as the truck! ;) Our '94 Sub has an aluminum radiator, but it's the wider version that they used with heavy duty towing packages. Cheapest price I could find on one last summer was $359. :eek1: Spending $120 to get a side tank replaced and the tubes rodded seemed pretty reasonable for that one... ;)

    prices on the radiators just dropped a few bucks due to poor sales at AAP. At least at my store they did. i can pick one up for 160 w/o my %20 discount. :saweet: :thumb:
