Re: Radiator

Thanks. That's a great price for aluminum, but the top hose nipple on that one would run right into the shiv on the A/C comp. I think I need to stay with OEM configuration to clear it.
I do appreciate you sending the link. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Radiator

Do a search on the net, My son had his radiator start to leak in his ford, and he purchased a new one from someplace like radiator.com for less than $120 delivered to the door. Most OEM radiators are sold by this place.

Again, do a search, but I believe the name was something like radiator.com.

Good Luck.

Re: Radiator

Just a little feedback on radiator.com. I think they SUCK. I ordered an aluminum radiator with plastic tanks, with a tranny heat exchanger for $200.00 They said this was specific to cj 350 swap. I got the thing and it wasn't aluminum and didn't have a heat exchanger. Then they said they would only exchange (not refund) it for the right one which happened to be a few hundred dollars more. (the one I thought I was getting in the first place) I think that is called bait and switch. Anyway, I was pretty mad, but I did return it for a refund after I paid the shipping.

I then went to summit for a griffin chevy one.

Not a positive experience.

Re: Radiator

I too just had a bad experience with Radiator.com (Jeepradiator.com). I ordered a replacement 3 core for my 1982 and received a radiator that looked like it had bits of calcium in the tank and the tubes looked like they might have been rodded out, definitly not new and made in Mexico to boot! They took it back as long as I paid to ship it. I went to the local NAPA and bought a new Modine radiator.

Re: Radiator

jeeze? I bought a new one for my cj (not aluminum) from radiator.com about two years ago. I was pleased, it was like 110.00 bucks and they would ship to alaska any method I preferred. might not sound like much, but SO MANY other distributors I buy jeep stuff from refuse to ship anyway except ups or fed ex, and a frieght bill ends up being more than you payed for the part.
Maybe radiator.com went downhill...
