Radiator Photo

My 1985 Silverado Radiator doesn't seem to fit like the stock one did new, and I was wondering If anyone had a photo of a OEM one. My aluminum one is about 3 inches to short and 2" to narrow. And it's suppose to be the dimensions that fits. I am confused.
I'm trying to get a tighter fit so my a/c condenser get's better air flow. My a/c doesn't cool great at slow speeds.

Re: Radiator Photo

Or if anyone has a factory radiator still in there early 80" Silverado with a/c and auto tranny, maybe you could measure from top to bottom and side to side for me.
Thanks

Re: Radiator Photo

From my 75 350 w/AC/Auto: 18.75 H, 33.75 W, 2.5 D. Not factory but replaced when brass-copper was the standard replacement. IIRC - was a drop in replacement.

Width is a bit of a guess as I was trying to eyeball measure around the hose hump on the driver side top. Width tries to exclude the hose hump.

I think 81 was when the radiator core support got the major redesign.
