    CC433 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from CC433 Fit my 1978 F-150 4x4 (Originally had 351m) Did a 460 swap for my Dentside. Originally ordered the CC395 which per the Jegs site said it would fit. The CC395 did not fit but the CC433 did. Make sure to measure and not trust what any website says. I don't blame Jegs because Ford used a BUNCH of different size radiators on 70's trucks. This one did fit my 1978 F-150 4x4 that came with a 351m and C6 auto. This will keep my new 460 nice and cool. Big thanks to Dream Fab Customs in Williams CA for the brilliant work!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bolted right in to my 71 F250. This has the angled brackets for a 2WD. They should include a side view to show that. I replaced the core support in my 4WD using one out of a 2WD and this mounted to it perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Radiator I purchased this radiator about a month ago and so far have been very happy with it. I was impressed right when I opened the box, it was polished aluminum, I was definitely not expecting to be able to use it as a mirror but boy was I wrong. I gave it a thorough once over checking for damage and build quality and was impressed yet again. There was no damage to the fins, everything was straight and the welds looked very good. It even came with a cap. The fitment was perfect with no issues at all. I will be buying one of these radiators for my Falcon when that is ready, no question about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I bought this to replace a factory radiator when I swapped in a 460 in my 69 F100. Keeps the big block cool.

    My 65 F100 V8 radiator mounting space is approximately 22"H x 30"W x 3" Thick....will this CC433 be compatible with my truck?

    Asked by: Martyyno
    No, this is much too wide. We would need a little more info to find the correct radiator at 1.800.345.4545

    What Are The Top Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators Products?

    The largest-selling radiator is the 3 Row design with automatic transmission cooler fitting many 1963-1990 GM passenger cars and trucks using a 28.25" core. In second place is the 1966 – 1974 Ford F-100 pickup truck with automatic transmission design. Completing the top three radiators is the Champion radiator design fitting 1965-1988 GM vehicles with 26.25" core and automatic transmission.

    How Much Do Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators Cost?

    Champion radiators range in price from around $230 for a radiator only to over $800 for a complete kit with a shroud, electric fans, overflow tank, and wiring harness.

    What Are The Main Benefits of Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators?

    The 3 core aluminum radiator selection offered by Champion Cooling Systems uses three rows of 3/4 " tubes. This design is capable of keeping an engine with up to 800 horsepower cool with proper airflow. The aluminum construction provides the best dissipation of heat, allows more coolant capacity, and uses no epoxy for construction; only welded seams.

    How To Install Champion 3-Row/Core Aluminum Radiators

    The first step in the installation process for a Champion radiator is to remove the old radiator if it is still installed. Next, the new radiator is lowered into place in the cradle. Then secure the radiator with mounting hardware, the shroud, or a support cover to the radiator support. If you are using an electric fan, it will need to be mounted to the radiator as well. Next, the upper and lower radiator hoses can be clamped to the radiator from the water pump and thermostat housing. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, the fluid cooler lines are reconnected next. Then, the coolant overflow or recirculation tank is connected to the radiator. After confirming the correct radiator cap fits the radiator, the coolant can then be poured into the radiator. The engine coolant bleeding process can then begin with the engine running as well as checking the automatic transmission fluid level and topping off if necessary. The overflow tank can then be filled to the correct level, completing the installation process.
