    I ran across a deal on a new 4-core radiator today. Picked it up for $155. Only problem is that this one has 3" tanks and my old radiator had 2 1/4" tanks. Everything fits except the brackets. I found the right size rubber spacers for the bottom but am having problems finding the right size brackets to go from the radiator support to the radiator tanks. Anyone have any ideas where I might find some? Figure something with a 6.2 might have something that will come close but not too sure.

    Looks like I found the info I need in another post from BigBurb. I'll still hit the junk yard tomorrow and see if I can find the brackets in something.

    BigBurb, thanks for the post with the part numbers!

    Yeah the 6.2's might work, they might be too wide though, there were some wide diesel ones. You can still buy the upper radiator support (one piece on the big radiators) and the BB fan shroud which I believe you need for the very thick radiators. Since you said you got numbers from bigburb, assuming they are GM numbers, go to http://www.dorianyeager.com/index2.html
