Need a new dual purpose radiator.

Just bought a 1979 Jeep and looks like a need a new radiator. But I want to put one in that will be able to cool off a 350 if I decide to swap the motor out. Does anybody know if I can put a larger radiator in and it still be ok for the stock motor? (I6) Thanks I tried to find out by searching but this has not been covered I think.

Any three core radiator with cores that aren't plugged with crud will cool a 350, and just about anything else you want to sock in there...

To be quite frank, there is probably more cylinder surface area exposed to water in the I-6 than there is on a 350, so I would think that anything that cooled an I-6 would cool a 350...
