I splurged on the Willys.



To replace this piece of crap.



I'll be getting rid of those brackets and the new one is supposed to fit in the stock location. I would have preferred a stock brass radiator, but those were double the price of the one I got. I may paint it black as I'm not really into bling, too lazy to clean. Hey, this is a work truck.

I do have to tap into the vast experience of this forum. I need to adapt the lower hose with a 1 1/2" diameter to the 1 3/4" id. Looking on ebay, they do have a few awkward looking items. Anyone have any ideas?

My Dad had a 60 Willys Pickup with a GMC 305 V6 swapped in it, and he could never keep that thing cool in the summer.

I'm adding a 3 row and the Willys is only spec'd for a 2 row, so hoping I don't have problem overheating. I've had british cars in the past and they seemed like they were made to overheat in our summer weather.

Are you going up from 1 1/2" to 1 3/4"? If so just getting the hose nice and warm and a little Vaseline.

Had to do that when I ghettoed a cheapo rad on my old GMC van.

That might work. Yes, the hose is a 1 1/2" and the lower outlet is 1 3/4". Going to be changing hoses anyway, but since they have part numbers and molded, i thought I'd stick with them. Always hated flexible hoses.

A 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" exhaust pipe reducer, with suitable radiator hose clamped on either end would work.
Cut the end off the stock radiator hose and find a 1 3/4" hose with the right bend in it for the end.

Or see if a radiator shop cad weld an aluminum reducer on it.

Yep, been looking into getting a reducer of some sort and a short piece of hose. I asked the radiator people about changing the outlet and they told me it's cheaper to find a hose that works instead. I'll install the radiator first and try to mock up some hoses and go down to the local parts guys and try to match them up.

Well, seeing as how I had a long weekend, I should get something done.



Pulling that radiator today since I'm not planning on using the truck in the near future.

P.O. never even installed lower bolts for the radiator.



Nasty rusty water.



It's out, cleaning up the paint over spray from the brown.



Used a little water and sponge sanding block I had handy.

It's temped in to check out the hoses. Upper hose fits really well, but the lower hose is 1/4" too small in diameter and the wrong angle.






Someday, the truck will get repainted in the proper Glenwood Green, even if I have to roll the paint on. The county is pretty strict about spray painting in a residential area.

Anybody need a radiator that is needing repair?

Boy, was I wrong about the size of the outlet, it's a 1-13/16" I got a flex hose (I hate those, but what are you going to do?) 1-3/4" and it was still too small. So I took the shipping cap from that outlet and brought it down to the O'Reilly's and matched it up to the 1-13/16" one. Had to special order that size reduced to 1-1/2". Now to just find a joining hose piece that large.



I did call a radiator shop and they told me it would cost around $150 to put on a reducer. I'll try the exhaust piece first.

I had a similar problem. I used a stock rad hose with the fancy bend. It reduces by itself to go to the engine. I just put a straight coupling onto it with some hose clamps.

That was in order to run 2 radiators in series. I had room for the extra hose. Not sure you will?

I should've bought this back when they didn't know better and had it listed for $9,999.

I'd love to have one as well.
I'm playing with a big Toyota right now. No resources for another truck.
When I do move to another project I imagine it'll be a Mercedes. Sadly, I may never have a Willys. :(
