  1. Here is a link. https://www.ebay.com/p/3-Row-All-Aluminum-Champion-Pro-Radiator-CC4749/1839296190?iid=261846443923 I trimmed off the down angle on the upper hose mount and got a 4 lb cap.
  2. The artist renderings for all the big three ads of that era were strategicly "modified" to give that long, sleek, spacious look to prospective buyers.
  3. I've used ATF and acetone, not sure why you would mix an oil base product and a water base one. Brake fluid has more in common with antifreeze.
  4. I'm in the process of rebuilding a 230 and the cost of machining and parts will be about half that. Check with George Asche in your neck of the woods.
  5. Do you know the rear end ratio and tire size?
  6. Do you have an overdrive transmission in the Meadowbrook and what is the rpm at 70mph?
  7. Here is a link to the site with the correct tools, patterns and colors to redo your dash to its original finish. http://woodgraining.com/
  8. The radiator I have is the Champion CC4749. I had to fab mounts for it and remove the down angle on the inlet. IIRC the one they recommend for the B4B has the filler in the center of the top tank (wrong). Runs fine in the summertime here. About $225 on epay. I can have rad hose # if you need.
  9. The glass sediment bowl on the fuel pump can be full and you can be out of gas.
  10. That ring looks the same as those on the B series trucks.
  11. When I had mine off it was hung out of the way on the wall.
  12. This link should help, the mount codes start on page 64. http://www.monroe.com/downloads/install-instructions-guides/MonroeMountingLengthSpecifications.pdf
  13. Someone on here had a thread on one he was building, haven't seen anything in a while.
