Radiator Q's

Postby flatcat19 » Thu May 22, 2014 10:17 pm

Soooooooooooo...


I need a radiator for the 210 A to L swap.

The A radiator has both the inlet and outlet on the opposite sides as an L.


(I wish I had a picture of the opening)
There are holes at 17 1/4" that I can put some J-clips in...But there will be a huge gap on one side.
There is another set of holes at about 20" apart but then there are pillars that prevent me from going bigger.

I CAN go bigger if I put some spacers there-but would rather be as flush as possible.


Radiators I've tried:

A10-too tall(3-4") and too wide(1/2"-3/4" on each side.)
521- 1" wide on each side---with an odd exception.
620-Damn near perfect. BUT...aren't there 2 or 3 different 620 radiators?


The exception with the 521 is that the Champion radiator in Keven's truck is not as wide as the OE 521 rad. we had in hand.

Other radiator mounting width's? Something I'm not thinking of?
I'd like to go with the Champion-just not positive of fitment yet.

The 620 rad I put in there was the closest. But I think the 510/521 Champion rad will work too.

I have a few emails out asking about measurements. Waiting on those.


Didn't jrock buy a handful of these to sell?

IIRC He bought 3 I think. One went to him, one to Hainz or Goldfish & 1 left. He said he was having troubles with them though.
