View Full Version : Griffin universal-fit part number...

02-01-2007, 10:05 PM
Does anyone have the Griffin part number for a universal-fit radiator to fit an 89 5 speed? A member was selling one awhile back pn: 1-26182-X, but that one does not look like what I would have expected. I need one for my car, but I'm not going to pay $500+ for a direct-fit radiator. Plus, I'm sure that a double IC will fit better without that bracket in the way. :D

Well i was unlucky!!!..But i had to re-drill holes in my rad support..Holes were way off...Rad appeared to be welded up crooked...Poor workmanship...Will never buy a Griffin rad again..

I had two that fit just fine. I did have an issue with a direct aftermarket replacement for a freinds car however..Same deal you went through but not a Griffin

Here's the link to Griffins Website. I order the one for my turbo car direct from Griffin and saved a lot of $.

The one Griffin I have I bought through Evans Coolant. Its custom made for them by Griffith. Its been awhile but I believe it was a two row rad with 1.5 inch tubes. This is only to be used with evans coolant. You can call them if you want it. It was around $800 bucks and like I said you need to use the EVans coolant with it. I had to run an external tranny cooler with this rad as it had no internal cooler


The other Rad is the one in my teal SC. It has the 1 1.25 inch tubes and can be bought through SCP for $615 (for a 5 speed)


As David has said the universal rads are much cheaper

This is a nice Rad I think better looking then Griffin and better pricing.
There are many size's to choose from.

Well, the two Griffins that I'm looking at are part numbers: 1-26182-X (Universal fit 22x19, 1" tubes, 2 row) and 1-56182-X (Universal fit 22x19, 1.25" tubes, 2 row) they're both the Ford configuration. I've found the 1" tube one for $179.95 cheapest price. The other I've found for $239 cheapest.

I've got another post going about making brackets for one of these...I'm surprised that buying a universal fit isn't a more common idea (or at least more commonly discussed) :D
