Looking for some help on a radiator. I run metric in enduros, rules don't allow aluminum racing rads. 2 seasons ago I bought a 4-core radiator from a local auto parts store. It was listed for a metric with California emissions/HD cooling. Now, no one can seem to find the listing for a 4-core in a Monte. I don't recall the brand, and I can't find the receipt. I looked on the rad I have, no #'s or listing...but it's been through a few crashes and to the repair shop a few times. Tags may have been removed. Anyone know where I can find one?

I went to a radiator shop and they had any radiator I wanted and they were affordable. But it was a radiator shop only.

the stock lower core support can be trimmed to accept a lot wider rad than stock this will let you buy a lot cheaper rad that are easier to find.

Thanks guys. I may need to go to a radiator shop and see what they have. On the last 4 core, I did have to do some trimming in the lower rad support. Thanks for your help.

what is the width on that rad? If I rember right the firebirds came out with a 4core rad that was 27 1/2 inchs wide (inside of tank to inside of tank)and the chevy monzas that came out with the v8 also had the 4 core.. I think it was shorter .If you cant find one let me know my uncle owns a rad shop and has good prices... thanks pickel
