Nice enough 2 row radiator

I bought one of these. It is a nicely built aluminum radiator. It is advertised as a 3 row, but the radiator I received was a 2 row. I returned it and AM handled the return very quickly and nicely.

Drain petcock size What is the size for the drain petcock on the radiator (threading as well)? This will be necessary to know so i can get an anode kit for this radiator.


  • There is no petcock. Mine arrived with a plug, not a petcock.

what is the warranty on this item


  • The Brembo GT500 Front Big Brake Kit - Slotted Rotors (05-14 All) falls under our 30 day return policy, however if you happen to have issues regardless of time frame, it would still be worth calling in and speaking with customer service:

    Good Quality Radiator

    The design and such of this radiator looks as good as the one I replaced, which lasted 12 years. So far, cooling is working in AZ we are seeing 113 degrees and my Stang is not overheating. On recommendations from the prior manufacturer, I will add an electrical ground from the radiator to the chassis. Water running through the aluminum will create a charge and without the ground, certain deposits will build up and crack joints.

    high quality and rock bottom price

    I was a little skeptical about the SR Performance radiator for my 89 Notch, but upon arrival and inspection of said part what I found was amazing to say the least. Thick core and hand welded tanks were done perfectly. No fitment issues or leaks. Radiator is of high HIGH quality. Throw in the fact its made in the USA and we have a winner ladies and gentlemen. I look forward to buying SR Performance products in the future and will not hesitate when doing so.

    Nice radiator for the price

    I have not installed this radiator yet, so I can't speak to fitment yet. It took a while to get, as it was on backorder for some time. Quality looks good, and for the price, it seems to be comparable to other, more expensive radiators. Installing this should drop 10-15 pounds of weight from the front of the car.

    Best radiator I could find at a reasonable price for my 1985 Mustang

    After sending three different radiators back because of cheap construction or very poor fit issues, I found this radiator on-line. It was reasonably priced and appears to be well made. The top and bottom aluminum rails are a little thicker than the original radiator so getting the clips for the plastic fan shroud on at the bottom was problematic while trying not to damage the core but I finally got them on. The biggest issue I had was the fit to the original rubber mounting pads on my Mustang. The square flanges welding to the top and bottom of the radiator were not long enough so the radiator wanted to shift front to back about 1/2 inch especially at the top left side. Plus these flanges had sharp edges that could gouge the rubber. I fixed this issue by using some silicon glue to put short 3/8 inch bolts in the ends of the square flanges (two each on the left side, one each on the right side) and then the radiator fit snugly into the mounts. These mounts fit over the tank joints on the original radiator and the left side tank is wider than the right side tank so the rubber mounts are slightly different on each side. Anyway, once I got that issue sorted out, I feel this is the best radiator available at a reasonable price since no one seems to be making original copper/brass radiators for the older Mustangs and there are very few radiator shops left that rebuild old radiators especially in my rural location.

    Radiator finish

    Radiator seems to be working but if your looking for show quality the finish is not the greatest. It has a silver paint over the aluminum and it comes off on your hands. It looks like they are hiding something with the paint.

    Great radiator!

    Arrived promptly (with 2 day shipping) and easily installed. Took about 30 minutes. Everything bolts right up but you'll have to open the clips off your old radiator a little bit because the aluminum is thicker than the original but a great product and great cooling for the money. Also is a 2 core but they're twice as wide as the regular so it's really equivalent to a 4 core. This thing is great
