kleen56 39, the key is surface area, so larger radiator of course will cool much better than smaller ones. More air, the cooler the radiator can cool. Radiators come with what is known as 2 row or 3 row and even 4 row radiator cores. 4 Row is the best for high temperature driving and cooling. Get a radiator that fits size wise and you'll be fine with a 3 row radiator. Make sure the necks on the upper tank and lower tanks will work with your engine. (lower hose on left or right side of engine and location of the upper hose. etc. Good luck.

kleen56 Not sure what your asking here? Are you wanting to replace the old radiator with a new one or an aftermarket, or from a different vehicle. Different radiators will work. The critical part is how many rows of cells are in the radiator, size (width and height). Several people choose aluminum radiators for their cooling capabilities. As long as the 360 is not modified, bored, stroked and you name it, you should be fine. If you also concerned with cooling, mount some electric fans to the inside of the radiator to draw more air.

Radiator, (set me straight)?

I have a mopar 360 eng and I have the rad bracket that the old one use to fit to, no longer here, and as long as I get a rad that can withstand my 360 eng I should be good to go? Or am I wrong? If so advise, thanks, Dana
