    Can anyone give me the radiator dimensions of the stock radiator? Also, the dimensions of the end tanks would help as well. I want to check them against the dimensions of mine before I give the info to Ron Davis for my aluminum set up.:D

    I will try to measure tonight. Does it matter if it is a 3 or 4 core, I can get measurements of either.

    i just dropped my 80s style 4 row into my 71 and bam... too tall. Not to hijack too hard but I have a shorter 3 row that will fit. Did they make a 4 row that is the shorter style?

    Yep, 1st Gen 4 core. I have one sitting in back, and it is the same as my 2 core.

    anmd it looks like no way the taller 80s style 4 core will fit? Doesn't look like it but thought maybe someone has adapted. Just need to find someone to trade. Any aplication the 4 rows that were common in? big block gen1s or something

    3/4 ton and up. A bunch of Burbs had the 4 cores also. Mine came out of a 68 K20. 1/2 tons also had them but I have seen more on the larger trucks.

    You can also order new 4 core that fits and then just get the wider supports from LMC. 2 on the bottom and the two on top. My radiator was a little less than $200.00 Milodin (spelling)
