    Are you talking about the "T" brackets in my pictures at the top of the thread? Those were in my car when I bought it. I have no idea where they would have come from. Could be that he got them from the same place he got the cross-flow radiator. There are upper and lower that were in the car. I have them sitting on the bench by the old radiator. I could take a picture of them.

    Do you need them? I don't see when I would ever need them again, as I can't imagine me ever putting that cross flow radiator back in. I can take some measurements off them so you can see if they would work for you. If you want them, you can have them for the shipping price.

    Sounds good. I will try to take some pictures tonight, add measurements, and post them up here for you to see if they will work for you.

      Here are pictures of the brackets you were asking about. They actually look home made. First pic is one of the top brackets. It bolted to the upper core support. Second pic is one of the lower brackets. They bolted vertically through the lower core support.

      There was strips of weather stripping between the radiator and the core support, so the upper brackets just had to hold down on the radiator and pull it against the core support.

      Thank you for taking the time to make up those detailed measurements. I don’t think those will be needed though. I had forgotten I ordered a top tank radiator (it’s been in a box for a few years) I had been sure I was gonna go with a cross flow prior to that.
      Looks like a nice clean install on your car, glad it’s working well.

      Thanks guys. Hoping it works as well when warm weather comes around again. It will be nice to be able to drive it without watching the temp gauge all the time.

        The Contour fans is the only thing I have found that keeps my 499" cool.
