66 G10 Radiator

Post by Rockandrollerman on Wed Jul 09, 2014 6:16 am

Does anyone know if a 66 Truck radiator is the same as the G10 Van Radiator? I'm having overheating issues and I'm wanting to go to an aluminum radiator but not having a lot of luck finding one that says it will fit my van. But I do see quite a few that fits the 66 truck.

Thanks for the reply's.

Not much of an aluminum welding kind of guy lol in fact not a good welder at all.

How does the angle iron attach to the sides...weld, rivet, or bolt on?

The Mustang one will fit with no alterations?

You got a core support that the radiator bolts to,,,,,unless you got a fancy SportVan,,,,,you need a 1 1/2" hose connector in the upper left hand corner,,,a 1 3/4" one in the lower right hand corner,,,,,all the radiators have mounting holes to mount them to a core support,,,,,,you bolt it in,,,,,,you might have to drill holes or use a piece of angle iron to get the radiator mount to the core support,,,,,,anything better than tie wraps will get the job done,,,,,just get one that fits in the doghouse......

now,,,,,,,if you have a SportVan,,,,,,the radiator bolts right to the doghouse on the passenger side,,,,,,you will need some angle iron or L brackets ,,,,,,a normal van has the bolts going front to back,,,,a SportVan has them side to side.....
