    Picked up a 88 \'burban for parts today, questions

    Well im partially into the 1 ton club. I picked up a 88 suburban today, got the 14ff rear end (i still got that danged 10 bolt front to shed) and the almighty 454. Now on the 454 there is a fair sized 6x6 maybe a bit bigger or smaller cooler, in front of the radiator, on the drivers side. Is this a factory oil cooler? Also, on the passenger side is an electric fan pushin air into the radiator, and then a mechanical fan on the engine, pulling. Is this electric fan factory or did someone add it? The 454 and 14ff are going in the K/V20. Thanks

    The cooler should be an oil cooler. They were an option on the burb, tucks, and k5s. As for the fan, that would be aftermarket.
