    What year did GM start running a stock tranny cooler through the radiator?
    I am assuming it would be in the mid 80's sometime?

    Will that radiator fit in a 1st gen Blazer?

    My 78 was stock through the rad, but after a rebuild of the ol turbo 350, went with an aftermarket cooler.

    I'm going to be running mine here pretty soon through both the tranny cooler in the rad and an aftermarket one /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'd guess around when the powerglide first came out. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Not all powerglides are liquid cooled which is why you'll see some of the PG bellhousings with cutouts for airflow.
