You better respond to Lostep fast....because someone like 427King or me....could buy this in a hurry.

Hector, Where is this 69 Beaumont 350 4speed? Do you own it?

In the for-what-it-is-worth file. The radiator should have a "BE" tag. The 350/4speed might do the trick. If you need the correct tank codes, I can let you know what they should be for the 396/325hp.

I don't see a tag, where do i find the numbers.How can you tell that it's a Harrison? It's only a two core. Tried to attach a picture but said that it's to big,I will take more pics at a lower resolution

I believe 2 core would be correct for 396/325 4 speed, no ac. If I recall correctly, the tanks would be embossed with the letters "IA" on the driver's side tank and "XJ" on the passenger side tank. "Harrison" will be embossed on the passenger side tank facing the battery.

Phil,got the numbers and pictures, it says IA on drivers side but says CkD on passenger side, what does that mean? I tried to post the pictures but it says that it cant be any bigger than 101000. I set my camera to its lowest setting, what gives? Posting is a pain in you know where every time you go back you lose everything you did!!!

C k D.... CD is the tank code...k is the month of production...not sure if they use the letter "I" so could be oct/nov....that has always been my understanding of how it works...

The embossed codes on the tanks are just what GM used for identification. "IA" is fairly typical for non-heavy duty Chevrolet tanks for this year, and I believe into 1970 as well. I don't know what the "CkD" application would be; does the passenger side tank have the word "Harrison" embossed in it about 2" below the radiator cap?

I can get the dimensions of the correct radiator tomorrow evening and will post them. That might help determine the usefulness. I've got the original radiators in my 69 Malibu 350/300hp and 69 SS 396/325 hp.

Phil, the dimensions would be great if not too much trouble. Is your 396/325 BB a two core and does it over heat? Another problem is the positioning of the overflow tube on after market tanks which point the drain hose toward the battery?! If the tanks are the same , I can acquire new after market tags, right? I contacted Hector about 350/4spd core in Canada and hope he is still watching.....Pat

Pat, No overheat issues with the 396/325 hp rad (I'm fairly certain it is a 2 core, I'll know for sure tomorrow when I check). It is stock and so is the engine. Has the standard stamped steel fan blade. Yes, the overflow tube on the aftermarkets is pointed in the wrong direction. I had a radiator shop change it for me on one of my cars with an aftermarket rad. I guess it wasn't easy. I believe the "Parts Place" sells the repop tags for about $29.

Pat, Here's what I found. The 396/325 hp radiator tanks are labeled IA for the left tank and XJ for the right tank, this is for a 4 speed, it is an original radiator. This I believe is what you'd ultimately want?

The IA (driver's side tank is is 2 1/2" wide and can accept a 3-row core), the passenger side tank is 3 1/8" wide and can accept a 4-row core (coded XJ). The measurement of the core is 29", this is the distance between tanks. If you have this, it should fit between your core support and the radiator top plate.

The 396/325 hp radiator is a two-row core. The 350/300 hp automatic with ac is also a two-row core. Both share the same driver's side tank, the 350/300 hp has a passenger side tank that can accept a 3-row core and is labeled CF (it is for an automatic with trans cooler).

Hope this info helps. PM me with your email if you'd like pictures.

If you are going to construct a radiator with the proper tanks, I'd recommend going with a 3-core, the correct tanks would accept that. Just a suggestion.

Phil Woj.

Phil, thanks for the legwork. Sounds as if the 350/300 could be used for the 396/325 4spd radiator( re-taged of course) using the tanks and built it into a 3 core which would be more desirable. I emailed Hector and hope he is following these posts......Pat

Pat,the BE is a fairly common Rad.,and was a 3 core.
It was used in many GM A & G-bodies from 1969-71.
It's original GM part # was 3016908.
It was used on all LS-3,L-35 & L-34 M/T equipped Monte Carlo & Chevelle/Elcos too.
Height-16.97
Width-28.30
Depth-1.26
Convolutions-.16
Frontal Area-480
Capacity-4.8 qts.

The 350/300HP engine used a 2 core rad.,(VA),and has a lower qt. capacity,width & frontal area compared to the 3 core BE.PartsPlace does repop the BE tag.

FYI, I have two original radiators here with "BE" tags, both unrestored and both are two core. It does seem odd for a BB to have a two-row core, but that is what I have. The small block 350/300 hp (1969 Chevelle) tag is "SB" which matches the build sheet for this car.

mr70, what source do you have stating that these should be 3 core? Your information always seems very accurate? I believe there may be a discrepancy here?

Pat, hope this info helps. Good luck.

Thanks.

Phil Woj.

Phil, BE radiators were 2 row cored radiators. Maybe Rick has them confused with BO or BQ codes which were the 3-row manual trans radiators?

Yep I was wrong.The BE is a 2 core.
I was comparing it to a local L-34 M/T here,that in actuality has a BQ Rad. replacement with an incorrect BE tag attached,that the last owner installed awhile ago due to overheating problems he had once he installed taller rear gears.I actually should have noticed it sooner as the parts book calling the BE depth being 1.26,is much narrower then the actual radiator on the vehicle I looked at.
Sorry for that misinformation.

Woj
That SB rad. is a Powerglide application I believe..yes?

The "SB" is with a 350/300hp / TH350. I managed to get a spare radiator with the same code out of a similar car with a TH350.

My Chevrolet parts manual is far from complete regarding radiators and codes, even the 1969 manual that I picked up.

Good info being traded here. Learn new stuff every day.

OK then Rick and Phil, I will concentrate on finding a BO or BQ radiator or equivalent set of 3 row tanks. Lots of stuff to think about before pulling the trigger. Thanks.....Pat
