Perhaps you mean 5 core ??

Suggestion: You would stand a better chance of selling the radiator if you gave the exact diminsions. Does it have fittings for an automatic transmisssion? Is it all aluminum? or is it brass? Just a suggestion

Sorry guys its a little hard to work with because it is not out of the truck jsut yet but the core is 26 x 24 with and overall of 28 x 28 it is a steel radiator for an automatic. the guy that the truck was bought from said that it held 5 gallons of antifreeze.

first of all they made no Steel Radiators for the heat transfer would not be any good, and for the 5 gallons no way, the whole cooling system should hold about 3.5 to 4.5 gallons, engine and all.

Im just going by what the guy told me he said he just put it in like a month before he quit driving it and it held 5 gallons and i also know that the outside is a black steel so maybe the inside is brass im really not sure i cant see enough inside to make anything out.

How about a little help bro? The rad is brass, it is in like new condition. I would say that it is the largest one o.e. you can buy. Some of you mud truck guys should be all over this.
