Re: Radiator

Since you need to replace it anyway, now would be a good time to upgrade to an aluminum radiator. Like was
already said, Summit racing sells aluminum rad`s pretty cheap. Their house brand is $169.95-$179.95. They
also have Griffen brand with all but the BIG chevy units going for $189.95. I just bought the summit brand
for my 401 powered CJ5. It brought the temp down almost 25 degrees from the large 3 core Wagoneer/
Cherokee rad. it replaced. That was also after I found I had a bad fan clutch. You don`t mention what motor
you have, but if it`s an AMC V8 the Summit Ford Part #SUM-380425 worked well in mine. The only difficulty
is that you need to fab your own mounts, but that isn`t hard.
