Re: 22 to 26 radiator



Hi James,
Unless you enlarge the opening in the support you will be blocking airflow through the radiator core. Sure some air flow and subsequent cooling will happen but, not the same results gained as by opening up the hole. Do you need the 26" core? Many fellas on this list get by with the stock 22". I have a 22", 4 fan unit built by Wizard that IS supposed to cool my 540 with A/C. I can't confirm that yet but, the sales guy was quite confident.

I have a '64 Belvedere that has a 22" radiator.  I am starting to gather parts to put a Gen3 6.1 Hemi in it and looking at radiators.  Has anyone swapped to a 26" radiator?  What all is involved?  Some things I read said it will fit no problem and other things said to modify the core support.  I am going to an aluminum radiator and electric fan(s).  I don't mind that a couple inches on each side would be blocked by using my 22" core support, I just want to know if it will fit without other modifications. 
Thanks for any advice!

James
