    Anybody know of anywhere that sells radiator mounts to fit a 78 4x4? LMC says they’re on back order indefinitely, evilest sells them but they’re over $100 with shipping which feels a little pricey, and everything else I’ve seen you have to buy the whole body mount set.

    Do you mean part 11 here? I know it says for 81-87 but I don't know if there is a difference in pre 81 or not.
    If so, I am 99.9% sure I have a set I'd let go, just let me know and we'll work something out. I do not have the rubber support pads though.

    ILl be at the shop here in a few hours. I have an 82 cab that may have the rubber mounts. If not I can at least get you some pics of the ones about to go in my 84 and you can make something that will work. there basically just shaped rubber feet that keep it from rattling around anyway so you could make your own from a low shore range D epoxy...just make sure to stay between 30-50 durometer because it starts to get too hard around 60-70d

    Which part? 9? 10? 11? What company is "evilest"? Never heard of them, but many could get called that.

    your picture doesnt help me know what you are speaking of. you mean the rubber itself? I thought you meant the rail it rests in

    I have seen garden hose used before. Could be a temporary fix until you get the real thing.

    you can use any '67-87/91 trucks and G series van ones, 4 core ones are largest and bigger than all the others.. all these years. the way they mount changed between 67-72 and 73-80 and 81-up but the cushions themselves are all same style design. just different lengths of them for sizes of radiators, IE thickness of tanks at the tank to core seams

    the placement horizontally is disctated on top by the cover plate, the buttom ones just rest under the radiator i think. or at least thats how my gpa put them in :p
