Don't get me wrong, I LOVE purchasing parts from this store. They are right down the road and very wallet friendly with their prices. However, I purchased one of these radiators and it leaked immediately after installation (out of the top of the plastic frame). I exchanged it without a problem, but that one leaked also. They allowed me to return this one with a full refund. I ended up purchasing a Champion Radiator for about twice the price as this one, but it works great. Bottom line: good company, bad product.

          I installed this in my 1979 Camaro in place of the original brass radiator. it was an easy installation and I feel that it was an upgrade. don't let the plastic tanks scare you off. plastic tanks are standard equipment in most modern vehicles. this was a direct bolt in.The transmission fittings fit,everything works perfect.

                    Which radiator cap should I use with this radiator. radiator #433162. My top radiator hose seeps a little anti-freeze thinking my AC Delco radiator cap is building up to much pressure.

                      A:

                      Hi Henry80Z! Since the manufacturer does not list the compatible radiator cap for this Radiator - Part No. 433162, I can only look up the radiator cap by a vehicle. Please provide us with the details of your application (including the year, make and model) and I will be happy to provide you with the correct radiator cap that can be used if available.
