  • 53 C/K Radiator Core height

    Can someone with a stock 53 C/K measure the height of their radiator core for me? From the top of the bottom tank to the bottom of the top tank.

    Thanks!

    Pat,

    Mine measures 14 3/4". It is an original radiator but has a new core.

              The new Griffin Radiator arrived on Wednesday.

              Today I got it installed and the fan mounted. It sits a little lower than the previous copper/brass radiator probably due to modifications to my core support at one time or another. My old down flow radiator is taller and the core support adjusted to fit that. I'm busy tomorrow taking grandkids to the zoo. So Sunday or Monday I will find proper radiator hoses for it and finish the installation.

                Thanks for the pictures. One of the nicest looking radiators I have seen. Thanks also Jeff_H for the diagram. I already had it saved from before.
