    I have a '62 Willys with a 350 Chevrolet conversion. I'm unsure as to whether the current radiator is stock but I am going assume it's not with what appears to be make shift welded brackets. The core is 16" tall x 17" wide. I have been hard pressed to find one in that configuration. I would like to replace it with aluminum (existing has a pin hole leak). Trying my luck with the vast knowledge here. Has anyone found a radiator with the core measurements or similar for a '62. Any help is appreciated!

    I have gone with the Mustang radiator and have elected to purchase a 16 inch fan. The jeep has electric and a mechanical fans right now. However, it sounds like the bearings are shot in the current electric fan (16") and the mechanical fan is trashed. Any thoughts on a Brand for electric replacement? With all the brands that are out there now, it's crazy trying to get the right one. Which raises another question... Do I stick with electric only? Or do I continue using both?

    I like mechanical with a clutch so it is quite. Then electric as a back up if I need more. I get tired of hearing electric all of the time.

    Good point!! All the noise in my jeep is from the electric fan. Thank you.
