    $^&*(((*&*^&^%$#@#$$^*()&* radiator
    while trying to get the crossbar bolt that holds the bell crank together i managed to whack a already fragile radiator. Now not a leak but a drain the whole damn thing in a hour leak. Can not see but probably messed the petcock valve on bottom, what the hell pulling it tomorrow and biting the bullet whatever it takes to make it hold coolant and do its damn job,,, even to spending 500.00 on a new one

    Oh man! Of all the things. If its just the petcock, that might be an easy fix.

    I think there was prior discussion about that radiator on this thread. Isn't it unique to the M38A1? I thought gmwillys said something about it hooks to the engine so it can be R&R'd as a unit motor and all. Maybe a CJ3B radiator can be made to work if it's more than an easy fix.

    Your right bmorgil, gm did say it was unique to the m38a1 after going back through the comments but like you said if it’s just the petcock it may be an easy/cheap fix!!!!
    Hopefully it is.

    the link had dimensions on it and i took those outside and matched to the actual radiator in the jeep. way way too wide, could i finagle it in, maybe. and everything is backwards, the entire system designed to come out as a power plant removal includes radiator when lifted out

    that new radiator is 600.00 us dollars from kaiser

    a the bottom of the front grill assembly there is a bolt at the bottom center that goes thru frame, mine has a bolt (the top is a ring) that came with the jeep, just took it off and got to wondering what in the hell was the ring for??
