RADIATOR: THE CONTINUING SAGA

I lost the bid on the Fiero radiator, which turned out to be just fine, because I found yet another radiator in my collection of things. I have no clue of the source of this radiator, but it appears to be a 3-core with the inlet/outlet ports in the right places. It's not as wide as the 510 radiator, but it's thicker, which means I have to make some modifications to keep my radiator fan from digging into it.

... I think it's time to clean up and inventory the parts I have in my garage. This whole radiator fiasco has been on the edge of lunacy.

Anyhow, this radiator is not a perfect drop-in. I'm going to have to weld up some mounting tabs, and probably cut into the shell of the 510 to scoot the radiator forward just a bit. Also, the stock 510 radiator's lower port has a 90-bend in it to allow the radiator hose to miss the alternator. This radiator's lower port goes straight out... so I'll probably just scavenge the 510's lower port and weld it onto the new radiator.
