Default 305e V6 3/4ton needs a radiator

If it's not one thing it's another...
You have all been great resources for everything, i am pleased to get such reliable help!

I need to replace my radiator apparently, and while i have a manual and additional resources, nobody identifies the type and style of the radiator. Any knowledge out there for what i am buying and where i can find it? I'm seeing ranges of price from 200 (yay) to almost 600 (boo) so I'm a bit confused and want to make this a 1 and done task.

My experience on radiators is you buy the best you can afford and be done for many years. Shy away from any aluminum universal crap. If you can get a factory radiator that has good tanks just bite the bullet and have a good radiator shop replace the core with at least a 3 core replacement made in the U.S.A. Stay away from a core from China - they are half the weight of an America made core and made from inferior copper. You will appreciate the money spent now down the road.
