Im the original poster. I'm not obsessed with originality, but I try to stay original as long as it's not costing me lots of money. I do have the top bracket for my radiator shell, it's just not installed in the picture. The only problem I now see in using my present radiator is that the lower exit tube turns straight up, where the original was straight horizontal. So, I cant use the nice factory made formed lower hose with my present radiator. Instead I have to use a flexible hose. Other than that, I don't see much of an issue. I have, however, located a correct truck radiator that looks good, at a good price. So, I'll probably spring for it and hope that it doesn't need any repairs.
