This is a heavy duty radiator. Much thicker than the one I was replaceing.

Bolt fit in the mounting location and hose fitup were just fine.

Could not mount the belt driven fan shroud as the mounting locations for the shroud did not match the radiator at the top. This was a moot point for me since I also installed an electric fan. A simple right angle bracket could be made to solve the problem if the belt driven fan shroud was being used.

I like having a nut on the drain instead of the more common wing.

Factory transmission lines do not mount up to the this radiator also the shroud needs to be rigged up as well. Being as Iam on a island and had this item shipped finding brass for tranny lines was a bit of a pain. Wished I would have known or I would have went with the oem radiator for this truck.

      I choose to buy a new radiator when I rebuilt my 96 bronco because it didn't cost much more than having the old one serviced/cleaned. With new motor and every other part new it was an easy choice.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Hi Sean, good question! The more cores in a radiator means the more cooling surface. A 3 core and 4 core radiator will keep your engine coolant cooler than a single or 2 core radiator. Depending on your usage, it might be worth the extra money to buy a 3 or 4 core unit. This radiator is an exact fit for your 1990 Ford F-350 Pickup. The core size of this radiator are 27 5/8"X18 3/8"X2" (HXWXD).

          • Q:

            I have a 95 f150 4x4 with a 351w with ac and am trying to determine if this will fit without mods.The customer service answers do not help at all. Will this double core fit in a stock 95?Is there special problems with this one. Nothing in the description says anything. I even tried chat with no results. Ok here is the number of what you need. Didn't even ask anything about vehicle. I guess I will have to go to a store and ask them and then come back and order online if this is the right one.I suppose you have read the reviews and see the trouble people are having.
