Hello,

I’m looking for information on the radiator for a 1940 1/2 ton.

Is this part part of the radiator?

Is this part available?

Can it be rebuilt?

Thanks,

Mike

Don't know what that goes to but not a '40. The filler comes out the top. It is accessed through the hole in the curved sheet metal piece that goes over the radiator. I'll check the number on mine and let you know tomorrow if that would be helpful.

Here is another picture of the radiator. It’s a Harrison radiator.
I would like to know what type of vehicle it came from. I found it in a box of parts for my 1940 1/2 ton truck.
If it is returned to service, how do you repair/replace the cap locking unit on the filler neck?

Thanks,

Mike

I am wondering if that radiator is for a flat faced cowl or utility body. That might move the filler neck inside the vehicle. I also thought about a COE but that seems to move the filler neck so that it would be less accessible. Also, consider industrial applications.

Apparently it belongs to a GMC 1940 truck. The radiator sits forward of the overhead support and requires a front mount with an extension..

Rabaut, I'm looking for that type of radiator, is it a 3 core? I need the tanks and will have Orlando Radiator replace the core. I want to put it in my 34 Dodge p/u. It has a 440 Mopar Super Wedge NASCAR engine (4 piece hood closes). It needs a GMC 40's era Harrison radiator according to my calculation's. Never listen to the aluminum radiator being better folks. If you are interested in selling let me know I believe it will fit. Doc
