Radiator for a 69

Post by SABLT194 » Thu May 17, 2018 12:35 pm

My 69 probably needs a new radiator. It has a leak in one of the tubes in the center of the core. I had it fixed once but I just sprung a new leak. I see that Spectra advertises a direct fit rad CU385. Can anyone confirm that it is actually a direct fit? I've seen a lot of conflicting information.

Have not been on here for awhile but will tell you what I found out but sure you know this now. These new radiators are not direct fit. Lower outlet is smaller diameter. Location is higher on radiator. Fan shroud will not match up. Had have new core made and solder to my old end tanks.
