    What radiator should I use for my fj40? I'm swapping a 350, sm465, and 3spd transfer case. Don't want to pay big bucks for the downey radiator.

    I just had mine 4 cored and put in a 19" 6 blade flex fan and made a fan shroud and It seems to run from 185 to 205 degrees

    wayne is right, stick to the stock radiator and have it recored. You stay original but gain the cooling effects of 4 core.

    mine is also recored, but 5 rows. No overheat problems, and I've been too lazy (for 10 years) to make a shroud....

    Any radiator shop outta be able to help ya, find one that works on forklift stuff tho, they tend to be my favorites....

    I've got the ebay $135 aluminum one. I just looked up the guy for a friend. They are up to $165 now. I've got the phone number at home. The guy is out of Iowa and builds them for dirt track cars.
