radiator for 350 swap

Getting ready to swap in a 350 in my cj and wondering if anyone had any ideas on what radiator to use. Worse comes to worse I'll pick up one from summit.

What radiator do you have currently? If its an upgraded one already you can get the necks swapped to work with the chevy at a shop for like $50. Worked great for me and saved some mucho $$$

Call Mepco Jeep at 1-800-388-5337. They have exact fit replacements for CJs with the GM configuration on the inlet and outlet. They are available in 3 core high efficiency and 4 core designs as well. Its about $200 for the 3he and $250 for the 4 core. They are the exact dimensions of the stock radiator and are a direct bolt in.

You might try your local radiator shop they may have something laying around that they could make fit and give you a good deal on it.

Re: radiator for 350 swap

hey i put a 305 in my yj, i went to advance auto parts, and got a neapco radiator for a half ton chevy 83 i think, its a 3 core and i only had to hammer the innerfenders out a little to clear it, i also had to move the drain petcock as it was on the bottom and would've set on the frame rail, it was like 100 or less and has a lifetime warranty, the 305 is mildly built and with a 12" i think electric fan, its yet to peak 200 degrees, and thats while givin it some, theres room for another electric fan but not in my bilfold.

Re: radiator for 350 swap

I got my 3 core from 4wd hardware, bolted right in with no mod's. Cools my 350 easily creaping around trails. I run the black magic electric fan. Mine only heats up on the highway 65mph plus because Im turning so many rpms. (in the summer)
