    I posted this in the diesel section w/o luck so far, so maybe someone in here can help me out.

    I have an old diesel conversion that the radiator was never swapped. Well I am leaking some fluid and instead of fixing this 20 year old radiator that is hard to get the tubes to fit, I am swapping it over to the regular gasser.
    My question is what are all the parts I will need to convert over? I have the new fan shroud, upper radiator core supports ("claw" type), plastic shroud retainer clips(go on bottom), radiator, upper hose. I have a flexy hose on the bottom so this mabe good. Is there anything else I may need?
