    looking for two items:

    Item #1 = Radiator Isolator Pads part number 1236777 and 1236778 specific for a 71-72 Buick GS. Need one of each part number.


    Item #2 = A Radiator for a 455 motor with AC and Auto transmission. Can be 70,71 or 72 year. Looking to get an original one to recore.

    If not, anyone have a recommendation on an aftermarket radiator they have purchased. I’ve been checking out the Aluminum ones from Speed Cooling
    http://www.speedcooling.com/Buick-Radiators/
    and the 3 core brass unit from US Radiator
    http://www.usradiator.com/buick-skylark-1968-71-l6-250-v8-350-400-455-radiator.html
    Have any of you used either of these? Or perhaps recommend something else.

    Thanks!

    If you find the Harrison tanks you're looking for and don't have a good radiator guy, let me know.

    Ok. The one that was in my car is pretty beat up and was leaking. Is this something that could be fix? Side tanks have some pretty good dents.

    Let me send him these and see what he says. Give me a few days. Looks like a 2 core. Would you want a 3 core?

    I'm sure he's seen worse.

    Sounds good. Yeah I would think 3 core would be better than 2 and still fit. Thanks.
