Doing a radiator swap and I am about to order the radiator. I have a car that was manufactured with air conditioning. When i go to order it does it matter if i select with or with out air conditioning? On O' Reilly's it shows different sizes. Can i get the smaller one without air and bolt it in?

Has anyone used these guys? They are based out of Az

ok. Good thought. They say in their add to call about a 3rd row. I think i will take advantage of it if it's only like a 20-30 buck difference. As you say we are in hell so an extra row would not hurt. As long as you have a good clean thermostat

had a customers 66 with a 289 (cammed) that needed a 3 row in it to keep from overheating

Big Radiator is always the best, fan shroud helps too

Trucker: I have an electric fan

Fazm: Mine has a mild cam to it and its a 302 so a three row will be a better choice
