Decent Radiator for Price

About Me Auto Enthusiast

Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

I bought this product for my 1969 GMC 2500 truck with small block 350. This truck had the original 3 Core radiator which was leaking and freighted with sludge. The new radiator is less than half the weight. If your truck has the 3 core radiator mounts you will need to trim the rubber to get this to fit, or order the 4 core radiator mounts from big block trucks, or trucks with tow package. To my knowledge almost no new repop radiator on the market fits the 3 core mounts without some modification. I plan to order the 4 core mounts for the top and replace the current trimmed setup, but it looks factory as is when in place. The only thing I do not care for (which is common on most new radiators) is the lack of metal insert in the fill neck, and the plastic drain plug. I did not experience any leaks on initial test. Although I have not road tested the truck this is a 3 core radiator and being aluminum / copper instead of steel / copper should offer some slightly better performance than 40yr old technology. Bottom line worked, and price was cheap, but as with any old vehicle some modification is neccissary.

      Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

      This radiator is constructed of aluminum and plastic, as most are in this price range these days.
      I had to fabricate mounts for the radiator, but that wasn't too much trouble nor did it come as a surprise to me. The bad radiator I removed from the truck was not the original or an 'exact fit replacement' radiator. I have no idea what vehicle the bad radiator came out of or was intended to fit.
      The new radiator is functioning well.
      A 3 star rating on this website is described as: "Average, Ordinary", which fits the bill for this radiator IMO.
      Oh yeah... a cool thing about this radiator is that there is a threaded brass female fitting (it comes plugged) in the right-hand tank that can be used to mount a temperature probe for use with an electric cooling fan. In this case I didn't need that feature but it is a cool option to have.

          Appeared to be good quality. Thicker and heavier duty than the original but still bolted right in. I did repaint it as the finish was very thin.

            1-What is the length of the warranty ? (example,six months,one year,etc.)
            2-What are the tanks made of ? (example,metal,plastic,etc.)

              A:

              Hi Larry, sorry for the incorrect information provided in my earlier response. This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle. The tank is made of metal and the core construction is made is copper brass.

          • Q:

            Is this Ready-Rad Radiator Part No. 433366 a 2, 3, or 4 core? I noticed that the one of the measurements for the 'inlet size on the top/upper left' of the radiator is 1 9/16". Now, from my knowledge...it is suppose to be 1 1/2" since most of the hoses made for the upper radiator during this year are 1 1/2". Can a 1 1/2" upper radiator hose still be used? I am concerned that it has too much space where it can burst. Please let me know if you have a 1 9/16" upper radiator hose that will work for this year (1969-1972 Chevy truck with a 350 motor, automatic TH350 trans). Once my questions have been answered, it will help me determine my purchase. Thank you...
