You may remember my post a while back when I was searching for a radiator. I bought into that aluminum 3 row BS and it was a nightmare - nothing fit, the eBay seller suggested I mod my grill, the cap was in the wrong place and the outlet hose pointed the wrong direction. I somehow crammed it in, and my fan tore it a new outlet. I wound up getting a two row brass radiator from radiator.com, it fits PERFECTLY. I have an 8274 on the front, no fan cowl, and a 195* thermostat and it's been in the high 90s here all summer, and she barely gets a tick above "C."
If I had it to do over again, I'd probably listen to some of the older and wiser members here and get the original one cored.
