After fighting with the AC compressor manifold lines for hours, my neighbor helped me replace the hood, then I found out I got the wrong freaking radiator. Why is this fun, again?

I got a 2" wider A body rad to fit in with a 5 min saws all job. I suppose your top hose would be too short even if the rad fits in the core support.

If you ended up with a V8 radiator, you should be able to move your core support rubber pads and your top plate rubber pads to the outboard position and run it.
Nope. Trust me, I tried. The Firebird condenser lines prohibit such .
