    351c radiator

    I am trying to replace my radiator on my 70 XR7 with AC 351 Cleveland, everyone that I looK up has the lower hose on the wrong side! Am I missing something? This is my old one on the left new on the right.

    New one is for a 69 or earlier.

    The 69 would be a 351 Windser. My 70's are the same as yours.

    For 1970 Ford made a change to the water pump on all Windsor based small blocks. Swapping the side the hose is on. I'm not sure of the why, but ir may have need due to the Cleveland engine coming on line. But they both use the same locations on the radiator like your old one has. You should be able to get it swapped for a correct one.
    FYI, Ginger is a 351W Cougar from the factory and my convertible is a 351C 4V from the factory. Both radiators look the same.
