radiator identification.

I was going to have my radiator freshened up by a shop but I was wanting to see what a new one would cost compared to the cost of having it fixed. The PO told me it was a v8 radiator but I wanted to confirm it and find what vehicles had this radiator.

Anyone? Its thicker than a stock cj because the grill had to be cut for clearance for the extra depth and width.

An AMC V8 radiator would have the lower hose on the other side.

I suspect that is some sort of the Chevy radiator, since you are running a 454.

It was in it with the 4.2 before I removed it. Even my jeep guy at Harmon fourwheel drive wasn't sure.

That is NOT correct for the 4.2L.
Outlet(lower opening)on OEM is located on the left side.
How in the world was the hose routed to the WP on your 4.2?

It had some tricky hose routing on it when I oulled the engine lol. I just searched harrison radiators and came back with what it possibly came from. I think its a chevy, mid to late 60s big block 3 or 4 core radiator.

That rad is also for an auto tranny.
See what the rad shop will charge you to move the outlet and do a 'rod-out' since the bottom tank will come off to move the outlet.

What does rodding it do exactly? I callled a local shop and they said 25$ to test and clean it, 65 if it needs repaired. I asked about fixing the fins between the tubes and they said they couldn't fix them. I thought shops could remove them and braze in new ones?

Sounds like you need to find another shop.
Ask them how much to re-core your radiator?

Ill call atound and see what I can find. Hopefully this radiator will do the trick for me

Rodding means they take the tanks off and run a flat rod through the tubes from end to end to clean them out.
