why don't you take your stock rad in to a quality rad shop and have it recored and redone to a 4 row radiator? I did this and run a V8 with no cooling issues, well most of the time. :)

Where is it leaking?

Tubes or at the tanks?


There was a thread on radiators not too long ago, with links to a radiator place online...you can get a 4 core for under 200.00 delivered.





Good luck!

You can get a 4 core for around $160 delivered, if you can find them. I found many places that claimed to have them, but when I ordered them they said that they were unavailable.... I looked for weeks and finally ordered a 3 core from some radiator hotline in the phone book.

do you think the 4 row makes a difference at all?

20+ degrees on mechanical Autometer instrumentation using the same shroud that was on the three row...


Good luck!

If you wan to fab brackets, summit sells a 28"w x 19" x 3" deep crossflow aluminum for $189. Its a great price, and they have been proven to efficiently cool V8s up to 350 HP with no problems. The only drawback is is you need to add a petcock drain in it and fab your own brackets. This radiator has a bigger cooling capacity than the stock 3/4 core cruiser radiator. As always, good airflow is a must.

If you do not have a V8 then AL is unnecessary..

FWIIW, I have been emailing this guy offering the Griffin on EBay and it is like a 19X22 for a Ford. He is also somewhat difficult to communicate with so that makes it all the more exciting.
