    Next time I’m at the yard, I’ll look around. (y)

    A quick search found this rad with both ports on the same side. I know it’s the wrong size, but you can see where the divider is welded in...
    It says this is for “1967-1972 Chevy/GMC C10 with GM LS engine Swap”

    coming from an FC guy....

    i would gladly pay 600 for a radiator if I needed one..
    the fact that there is still a company that offers a new unit for a unique low production, 60 year old vehicle .. they deserve the 600

    or fix the original, prob cheaper depending on the core condition..

    I bought 2 used ones that "didn't leak". They leaked. So I'm out 140 bucks.
    At 500 to re-core one of the originals, plus 4 hour round trip, (hour there, hour back, to drop off, x2, because i have to go pick it up,) $600 dollars to buy a new one shipped to my door was just money wise the better choice for me.

    I've always called that a two-pass core.

    I had my early FC150 red recore'd recently. $412 including tax. There are only a few companies nationwide that still make the copper cores your local rad shop uses redoing these. I went and looked at mine while it was apart and there is a divider in the top tank. They told me it was important they got that sealed correctly. Old school shop, they knew what they were doing...If you want a scary number, get a dukw rad, with a crankbox, recore'd. Did one of those 3 years ago.

    It doesnt need the outlets on the same side. The tanks will just be on the sides instead of the top and bottom. Youll just have to figure out mounts
