Well , I just received another radiator in the mail a few days ago.
I had a bit of spare time yesterday so I got it out of the box and bolted it onto the "new" bolster I have.
It all bolted up with no problems , sit nicely between the side supports with no interference anywhere.
Looking side on , the radiator sits vertical with no lean at all.
The only difference with this radiator is the rubber pipe for an overflow. I'm going to fight my OCD and leave it as it is.....
This radiator was a NOS item made in 1981.
The next step is to get the 'new' bolster on and see if the rest lines up...fingers crossed

Congrats on this latest unit in this radiator saga. Maybe you've turned the corner on this and things will mate up better from here on out... :wink:

Hi,
I noticed in your pics, the radiator ID tag is on the rear side of the radiator, and you have the side panel in the pic facing with the hole with the threads for the hood bracket bolt, to the rear.
The hole has to be at the front, if the hood brackets are in the original position.
You need to change the side brackets to the opposite sides, so the threaded holes are at the front.

I wish someone would make replacement radiators that are exactly like the originals were. :)
