Running hot

This Nissen's:

is what people have been using "forever".  Direct fit, but does require 
a "universal" corrugated top hose since for some reason the hose nipple 
is a couple of inches further from the engine.

I cut two original hoses and joined them with a stainless steel barbed 
fitting, but that's not necessary, it was just fun to do.  And cheaper.

I don't know if people have used the other radiator shown there.

Has your car overheated yet?
