Looks like an era replacement 28-29. Does the filler neck have a threaded cap or a 1/4 twist cap? Rod

It's tough to see just what was done other than a replacement core. From the tanks it appears it was from an early 1930 "AA" truck. The hood gap would be excessive if used on a '28-29 passenger model but was considered acceptable on the big trucks.

The radiator was dissassembled, the tubes were rodded and the tanks resoldered. The core was not replaced. The unit was then tested to 4-5 psi. The filler Tube is threaded. This unit will not fit on a early 28 tudor, thus the reason for selling it. I will have trouble selling the unit if I can't identify the year of the radiator.

Where does it not fit. Wondering if it is the early 30 AA as Marco suggests or some other variation. My mind has also waundered towards the possibility it might be an industrial version with the top tank changed and fan shroud removed. This would be evident if the mounting holes are wider than the holes in the crossmember. Rod

When installing the radiator perpendicular to the frame, the fan blade nut would easily go into the core probably a 1/4'. The mounting holes are the correct size.
