Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Looking to buy an aluminum radiator for my 408 which will go in my z11, but can't seem to find anything that looks like it has mounts for the bottom of the factory fan shroud. Anyone have advice on which one that will use the factory shroud and how they mounted the shroud?

I know Alumitech will add the lower tabs if you requested when you order from them.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

I have the summit direct fit radiator, the brackets can be ordered with the radiator to use the shroud. These brackets bolt in using the two lower mount bolts and use the stock recesses on the fan shroud.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Just got a Alumitech with tabs welded on for the factory shroud, a nice quality radiator. Should have it in by the weekend I'll post up a picture then.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Thanks everyone - Al posted what I need it looks like for any radiato - curious what our radiator looks like when you get it Dean, I may go that route if it looks good - was there an extra cost by chance for welding on the tabs?

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

The Champion ones on eBay are set up to use the factory clips. I just have holes drilled in the bottom of my shroud and zip tie it though.

Small block is $200, big block is $220.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Thanks, can't wait to see some pictures of the tabs! I'm probably leaning toward Alumitech for the radiator - wish they would put that Harrison stamp on the alumium ones like they to their repros.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

I'm very happy with fitment on the Alumitech, No slotting required. I'm running a NOS GM radiator support.
Shroud clips lined up nicely.
Thanks Dave for a quality product.

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Thanks for the pictures Dean! I talked with Alumitech today - think I'm going with the BB / SB w AC radiator - 10% bigger but have to find a SB with AC Fan Shroud - any recomendations on who makes a good one factory weight/thickness?

Steve,
Can't help you out on that one I think there are only big block and small block, A/C no difference.
I bought NOS one from GM parts direct. I think they are still available.

Hey Steve, on a '69 all small blocks got a 21" radiator. Adding A/C or HD only added another row, it didn't go to the 23" one. They stopped putting the 23" (regular production anyway) in small blocks in late '68. There is only one shroud for '69 small blocks. If you're going to get the big block radiator then I don't know if the fan opening would be right on a '69 BB shroud. Maybe have to get a '67 or '68 SBC w/AC shroud?

Re: Aluminum Radiator with mounts for factory shroud

Thanks Stiener - was looking at that - the 67/68 uses a short water pump and I think the shroud is 1" longer to make up for that - wonder how much difference critical that will be for cooling? I'm thinking not much difference, thoughts? I can get either this or the BB shroud for a 69 from GM still for $100 plus shipping. Does the big block have the same relative fan location as 67/68 SB I wonder? If so, I'll get the SB AC Shroud since there won't be a difference in how far the fan goes into the shroud. Looks like a different part number for 67/68 BB vs 69 BB shrouds, did that year change the water pump length on BBs as well?

Well, if you're going to run a mechanical fan then you can just get the correct spacer to get your fan set right. If you're going to run a clutch fan, the standard Hayden clutch and Flex-a-Lite fan might fit good with the extra 1". That's what I have and the fan is only in the '69 shroud about a half inch with a lwp.
