Griffin designed this radiator to mount in either the V-8 position with a V-8 radiator support or in the 6 cyl position on a 6 cyl radiator support. If mounted in the V-8 position there will NOT be adequate for an electric fan. If you want to use a belt driven fan blade there is sufficient room with the radiator mounted in the V-8 position. If you have a V-8 radiator support and you choose to mount it in the 6 cyl position you will have to purchase or fabricate adapter plates for the correct mounting bolt alignment.

Griffin designed this radiator to mount in either the V-8 position or in the 6 cyl position for additional fan clearance. There is a transmission cooler in the lower radiator tank. Fittings are on 12 1/2" centers and are 1/4" female pipe thread. This radiator has 2 rows of 1.25" tubes which surpasses most aftermarket radiators with only 1" tubes. More surface area equals more cooling!! Dont let someone sell you a three row with smaller tubes that is imported. This radiator is 100% Made in the USA!!!
  This radiator is also available as a Combo Unit which includes an aluminum fan shroud, 16" Spal fan rated at 1925 cfm, wiring kit with thermostatic switch and a radiator cap. The part number for the Combo Unit is 8-70018 CU.

Griffin Aluminum radiators are made to bolt in exactly as a factory replacement radiator would. They are available in several core designs such as two rows of either 1 inch tubes, two rows of 1 1/4 inch tubes or two rows of 1 1/2 inch tubes. All Griffin radiators can be ordered with an aluminum fan shroud, electric cooling fan, thermostatic fan control and even an A/C condenser. The radiator can be polished as well as the optional fan shroud. An internal automatic transmission cooler can also be built into the radiator. This particular radiator can be ordered in a variety of configurations to suit your cooling needs and your budget.
  This radiator is a normally stocked item. If it shows out of stock, please contact us to see when it will be back in stock.
