OEM direct replacement but thinner core

Easy replacement. Even with thinner core it seems to cool my truck adequately.

I replaced a clogged radiator in a 4.3l S-10 truck (thanks DexCool!) with this unit. It is a single-row alum radiator, and it had a noticeably thicker core than the unit i was replacing. Word around is that this rad can cool even V-8 conversions. It's a direct and easy fit and has BOTH the trans cooler (not used in manual vehicles) and the engine-oil cooler (only used on V-6?).

HOWEVER: The first unit i installed had a leak at the top of the left side tank/core crimp joint. I might not have noticed if it hadn't been right on top, and that would have been even more aggravating. The second radiator seems fine, and of course i scrutinized it carefully. Some sharp edges from manufacturing, but nothing we're not used to dealing with.

          There is no fitting for a drain hose. The coolant drains out the bottom of the petcock onto the radiator support so you will need a big catch pan.

                [...] everything hooked up fine with no leaks. the problem was when I tried to drain the system the petcock just spilled coolant all over. There is no hose connection and the coolant leaks out of the valve. poor design.

                    plug up the ports. ive bought radiators for manual trans cars that have trans coolers built in. you just buy a couple brass fittings and screw them in. done.
