        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        This radiator looks exactly like the original, which is what I wanted. I did replace the plastic drain petcock with the brass one from my original radiator. I just installed it and it fit the way it should. I haven't driven the car yet to see how it holds up, but it looks like a good radiator.

                What are the exact core dimensions and overall dimensions for this radiator. Under specifications it shows core height at 25" and core width at 16 1/8". If that is correct this radiator is definately not an exact fit for a 1965 chevrolet impala 327. Thank You.

              • Q:

                I am not familiar with the plastic plug or drain petcock in the drain hole. Tag attached to radiator cautions against stripping threads and states to see instruction sheet in box. There is no instruction sheet enclosed in the box.
                Have posed the questions via email and got the "within 24 hour" response around twenty hours ago - just have to wait I guess but it would have been nice to have the sheet.....

                  I just put one of these in my 1964 Bel air. I'm running a 383 with a powerglide transmission.
