Need a Radiator

With the new k5 buggy build the old radiator isnt going to work. I am looking for something in the 28" wide x 16-19" tall 3 or 4 core with mounting tabs. Does anyone have a good website I can just browse around on? This is to be cooling a small block 350. Thanks.

I checked them out, I will call them though, all it has is the width. I need to know height and how many rows.

how many rows are needed to cool a SBC? I have always had stocker 3 or 4 rows in them. How small can I go without it causing an issue? I am still looking for a website with better search parameters.

OK. I got my final measurements for my radiator size, it can be 30" wide x 15" tall. How do you know how much radiator you need to cool your junk? It is a stock 350 with TPI added to it. No one has a guess/clue?

go aluminum-2 row & never have a problem,aliminum rows are 1"wide instead of old copper 3/8 or 1/2 also more efficiant.

How do these mount? Are there tabs on them that are not shown in the pictures? I am trying to do the same thing right now in my Big10 Truggy.

ok, thanks, I am still researching too. It looks like flex-a-lite has a new set up that has adjustable mounts on it. I may try it.

that is the link to the flex-a-lite site. I haven't found any place that sells them real cheap, but summit and jegs carry them. I plan on going w/ model # 55330L. It comes w/ the electric fans and runs around $750. It is a lot of dough to drop, but I think it will be well worth it for a clean install. I don't plan on having any skins on the front of the truck for a while, so the radiator will be very visible. The way I have the stock radiator on there now is very white-trashish (but it works )
