Thought I'd tell you the trick I used to swap a V8 radiator in place of a 6 radiator. My '81 J10 with 258 was overheating and the radiator was totally shot so I though I'd swap in a V8 radiator. I ran into that core suppport problem instead of giving up I got out the airchisel, hacksaw, and abrasive saw. Only took about half an hour but I trimmed it out for the V8 rad. and moved the core support/bodymount over then welded it in place. It looks just like a factory job and the new radiator really cools off my 258. Oh and I love my 258 it always works great! Plus its alot easier to work on than a 360, alot less parts!
