Radiator for a CJ-7 with auto tranny

Wow,

I haven't been here in a while it's good to be back. I've just been so darn busy, I'm helping my dad build a house plus I've got a little one on the way, could pop out any day now.

Anyway, on to the question - I'm looking for a radiator for an 86 CJ-7 with the 258 6cyl and an auto tranny. I'm having trouble finding one with the the nipples on it to plug in the lines for cooling the tranny. The one that's in the jeep now has it, but it's an old one and it leaks.

Anybody know where I can find such a beast [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Thanks - Jason

Re: Radiator for a CJ-7 with auto tranny

I bought mine from Ebay. Here is a link to another one just like it. 3-core. It has been fine for me for about a year now - no problems. I run my tranny lines it (lower part of course).

Don't worry about going back into the radiator...it really does little good. But pick up something like a B&M cooler like this one at 4WD.com will cool you off better and not take the chance on the radiator rupturing and dumping coolant into your tranny lines.

Re: Radiator for a CJ-7 with auto tranny

Ya that sounds like a better idea, I think it had a cooler like that when we got the jeep but the radaitor that was with it had the holes for the tranny lines so we used them.

Ok, so next question then, where do I mount the B&M tranny cooler, can I mount it right behind the radiator?

Thanks again,

Mounts to the front of the radiator. Don't remember where I got mine (will look it up later). Came with everything you needed to hook it up and hang it on the radiator (all lines, and clips) and mine had a temp sender and gauge...for about the same $$ as that 4wd one. I'll let you know later today.

Re: Radiator for a CJ-7 with auto tranny

Found my receipt. What I got was the Flexalite (linked above) from 4wd.com. it was $19.99 4 months ago...so they've had a 50% increase in price...I ordered separately a temp gauge kit (B&M) that was $39.95 from 4wd.com...they have now had a 30% increase it the price of it...Look around you may get better pricing. The cooler I got is a genaric aplication 12,000 # GVW.
