So what you really meant to say was you once saw an aluminum radiator that didn't work well with a shroud, not "most....'.
Thanks for clearing that up.
There you go again, making a statement about what was never "said"......
Over the years, I have seen about 25-30% of the alum rad. not work with the fitting of a shroud, for the reasons I posted. Along with heavy mod/cutting of the grill recess, for clearance.
And NO, I didn't keep a list of the makers.......
Have'n you along, is like loose'n 2 good men
Whatever, Lumpy. I quoted what you "said", numerous times, and you continue to back-pedal. 25-30% isn't "most", it's about 1 in 4.
The truth is, "most" aluminum radiators, that are currently marketed specifically as an OE replacement for a CJ, will use the same (4) mounting holes as the factory radiator and shroud use. That applies to both 2 and 3-row models. The quality may vary slightly between brands, but they are not significantly different, and everything bolts up as it should.
Yep the folks with the inline 6's have clearance issues that us V-8 folks don't have. Although there are some solutions, the options are limited, sorry to say.
The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
