Are radiators all the same across the years?

No.
The coachs with CACs will have different tanks on top,at the very least.
so the 87-89 should be the same on FCs.
and i guess from 80? to 86 will be the same,maybe even older.

Inclusive of the bracketry et.c. as an assembly, 36" x 29" give or take a 16th

Going to SAV tomorrow for a recore. Old fan strike ruined the core.

Chip could you take some pictures of the radiator front and back and maybe lay a tape across it to get a measurement of the input and output of where the coolant hoses connect ?

So here's what we know.

The total dimensions of the radiator are 36" x 29" x 5" thick.

The radiator is symmetrical - i.e., it can be installed upside down or right side up; the drain cock and the low water warning light bungs are identical and centrally located in the tanks. The in and out necks are in the same place at about 6" off the side as shown in the photos (centerline) and at a roughly 45 degree angle to the outside.

The side brackets are the part that would need to be blueprinted and we were short on time, as holes need to meet up with the holes for the swing hinge et.c. If this is not simple (I don't think it is as I just thought of this point) I suppose I can trace them out when I get the rad back from SAV.

Maybe, however, this provides enough data to find out whether this is a more common radiator than initially thought?
