Move the passenger side support over. I think the outlets are at different corners also...

The civvy Jees did not us the same radiator...the civvy 230s were 2 core instead of 3 and arent enough to keep it cool....I know from experience....and the other engine radiators have incorrect hose locations...

That's what Jon was referring to...what happened to yours? A good radiator shop should be able to fix it.

Oh. Big ol' crack in the top tank and I think a few small leaks on the bottom tank.

Now that you know you really need a M715 radiator for the M715 with the 230. What engine do you have?

A 1967 396 Chevelle radiator will basically fit right in if you have a Chevy V8 in the truck. Change the angle on the hoses and it will work with the 230 as well. You can find them online for $150-$200. The biggest Summit aluminum radiator with the Chevy outlets will also work with the passenger side core support moved a few inches.

I was able to modify a Modine 583 to is a CJ and A?MC car radiator, 3 core, has virtually the same face area...very very close...

After buying the radiator for around $160, I had to have a little work done...

Upper and lower hose mounts moved from one side to the other
Petthingy had to be moved due to interference
Mounting straps from the original radiator were removed and put in place of the ones on the new one.
New holes needed to be drilled in the staps to mount the radiator.

This unit does have an auto trans cooler...I just didnt use it...

The width, length and height work fine...though it is slightly taller than the stock one...

That stuff ended up costing $75 and so the bill came to $225...

I would go with the Summit model today...
