1928-29 Radiator shell

July 17, 2016
The opening for the radiator neck at the top wasn't large enough to allow it to slide down over it. It required grinding the inside of the opening to allow enough clearance. The sides are not very smooth. The ripples from a poor job of stamping are very evident. For the price it serves as a replacement for the original.
No, I would not recommend this product.

The T radiator is of different dimensions for your comparison to the 28/29 shell and your preference of fit.

Part # 91122102 Inside opening of the shell is 18 5/8” wide and 18 5/8” to the bottom of the eyebrow at the top. Overall the shell is 21 ¼” at the widest by 28” tall. Your radiator would not be an exact fit and the shell curves inward toward the top but it could be used.

I am not sure of the dimensions of your radiator but the shell you were looking at is for a '28-'29 grill shell. We do sell a Lo-boy '32 grill shell part number: 97451532 that is chopped 4 1/2" that will work with our part number: 974-15986 Low boy radiator.

Will the radiator #9175159 fit this shroud

Answers

This shroud is OEM specifications and the correct radiator fit is only available thru direct fit radiators from Walker, Afco, or Griffin. The universal radiator is about 2 inches too short and 4 inches too narrow so there would be a gap on both sides . Height wise with the tank design the radiator could be mounted lower but the upper tank may show also.
