My radiator has pin hole leaks, but I got my K5s radiator laying around somewhere, are they the same. Is it smaller? Will it bolt up, well obviously if they are the same.

i would imagine a k5 radiator wouldnt have the same cooling capacity as that of a burban which weighs substantially more, but why the heck not, yank it out from wherever and compare them..

I think it depends on what originally equipped with. My stock 83 radiator is a 3 core, and even in AZ I rarely see 200 with a/c on. Those are fine for small blocks I think. Big blocks, tow rigs, and very hot motors need the 4 core. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

My stock suburbans radiator seems to work just fine(havent tested when its hot out though), its just that its leaking. I dont really want to put stop leak in ether because its a brand new engine.
