    Having some issues with teh 4 core cushions on the core support. The old 2 core radiator the "tit" was dead center. These are offset which is needed onthe upper but not working on the lower. Also the lower core support the hole looks centered in the 3.5" space, radiator is roughly 3 1/4 and the mount is way longer. DSC_0012.JPG DSC_0011.JPG

    They are fine on the top, have a pair up there, but need the lowers replaces also.

    Those look like the same ones. Notch on one end and offset "tit". I got these fro Classic that said needed 4 for the radiator.

    Try mounting them as the second pic and cutting off the EAR sticking out to the right. That's what I remember doing when I mounted a wider 4 core radiator in my 71 Firebird.

    That was going to be my plan and maybe drilling an additional hole for the "tit".
