    Mark, Like I said my 87 (454) had both V-belts and a serp belt..Kinda strange but they (GM) might have used leftover V-belt parts, Who knows..
    I run aluminum radiators in the race cars (weight savings) but really like the BIG brass the best cuz of the better cooling results in the desert heat.
    One of the reasons I've mentioned the "Stewart water pump" is it's a fully machined NEW chebby pump and the water flow is 19 GPM VS the stock 9 GPM pump....
    108 in Indian wells today and my buddies in Phoenix are running the same, Krap doesn't mother nature know it's fall

    Hello Leadman
    My 83 was pulled from the front once the grill was removed...Very easy.
    When I purchesed the 87 (454) the owners just changed radiators so I have NO idea if it came out the front or not.....
    My bet is the 87 came out the front also and removing the front end stuff is a cakewalk....Reinstalled a 4 row (1/2) tube brass and the old one was a 4 row but it had (3/8) tubes PLUS only a 5 blade fan....
    I'll bet your has a reverse flow water pump and since your in there I would reinstall a "Stewart pump" and thermostat, IF you need more info please contact me again..
