Sorry if this has been posted before, I was unable to locate anything today on it.

My 83 Bj60 3B Rad is on it's last legs.
I have a brand new rad for my old 86fj in my garage.
I'm trying to find a solution for the bottom hose if I'm to place the fj rad into the 3b.
any one have a part number or a thread link I could read it would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Are the outlets on different sides of the radiator or just different sizes? My 40 radiator that used with my BJ60 3B engine had outlets on opposite sides of the engine compartment. I used a extra long flex hose from NAPA and it works. If I have any trouble I will take it to a radiator shop and have them swap the bottom outlet of the radiator to the other side. Any radiator shop can do that.
you can bring your radiator to a radiator shop and they can change the inlet/outlets to wherever you want them. i did this once with a 3fe rad to be used for my 2h. cost 1hr of labour from the shop
i have a bj60 rad out of mine i dont need, you could have it for the price of shipping.
actually nevermind... its pretty rough. the rad shop can switch the opening for cheap anyways.
Thanks everyone.
I'm going to take it down this week to a rad shop and get the bottom tank swapped over.
Thanks to everyone for thier tips.

I'll let you know the final tally on the price when i'm done.
