This is a direct fit radiator for a 1948-1953 Studebaker truck.
The standard core for this radiator has 2 rows of 1" tubes. The tubes are space 3/8" apart, on center. Some manufactures space their tubes1/2" on center. With 3/8"centers we are able to put allot more rows of tubes, fins, and coolant volume in the core as well as create allot more surface area for air to travel over......allowing for greater heat dissipation. The fin count on this radiator is 16 Fins per inch. Please read through our FAQ ( frequently asked questions ) page to learn more about the different core types and constructions and why the performance of ours are superior to the other options in the market.
The filler neck is machined from a solid block of billet aluminum. This is a very strong type of filler neck that will not get damage during shipping and will not become deformed over time as with the stamped filler necks that many manufactures use.
The core is fully furnace brazed and is not epoxied. This unit is fully TIG welded. We do not MIG weld any portion of our products.
