I am not a radiator man, but I worked at a shop years
ago and I know that it is possible to add a tranny
cooler to a radiator. It depends on one thing. Can the
bottom tank be removed without applying so much heat
to the radiator so that you weaken the radiator. This
in turn depends on three factors. One is how old is
the radiator? An old radiator will not take much heat.
Two is what kind of seam is it? An inverted seam
requires more heat than a straight seam. Three is how
good is the radiator man?

After the tank is removed holes can be punched in the
tank, the cooler installed, and the tank replaced on
the core. If your radiator is a good quality comercial
unit, it may be possible.

My '79 Bronco has the grill from a '77 F-series in it ... I would be
inclined
to say "yes". :-)

Actually ... I think the whole front end of it is off a '77, so I cant be
*completely* certain ... I think some or all of the '78-'79 models
had a different front end and grill which is vastly a different design
and shape than the '77.

shelby's had 429 police interceptors in them in early 68, later on they came
out with the 428 cobra jet which made the shelby a "KR" king of the road. 68
shelby engine code for a 428 was "S" which is actualy the code for a 390 it
gets confusing. the 428 cj code was "R" .
