It'll work fine, it'll just provide more cooling then is really needed.

from my experience with F bodies the radiator support won't allow a A/C radiator to bolt in where a non A/C came from; the difference is one is 18" and the other one is 22" heck I think they even make a bigger one again from that

A/C and non-A/C aren't necessarily different. A/C radiators will be fine in a non-A/C car.

The 18" is a slant light-duty only radiator. Most 22" core supports I see are really 26" supports blocking the extra 4" of opening. 26 is in most of these A/C V8 cars.

Those measures are standardized and were used from the early/mid '60s up until '93.

Make sure to look at the opening and compare it to your current first.

If your current's a 26"- get a 26". The only reason not to put a 26" in is if you really don't have the ~24" opening for it AND have a thick 22" radiator instead.


If it's this car: https://www.dippy.org/forum2/index.php?topic=9595.0, that's an "A/C" radiator.


After just doing this, if I got a parts store radiator, it'd be for a 1985 W150 318. I didn't and wish I did. But at least I moved the overflow out of my way.

While that was ttue earlier, there was just one M body radiator listed in 1985. AC, nonAC, cop they were all the same.

Really? strange since its a factory non a/c car: floor vent, non-a/c climate control, no a/c junk in the engine compartment, plus nothing on the window sticker saying a/c  (though on the fan cover theres a sticker saying something about a/c charging :huh: )
