Any suggestions as to where I could go for an original looking radiator for a 327 HK? In the past I have been able to go to my local radiator repair place but both have closed down. Looking for something with original looking header tanks and shroud brackets and such, I'm located in Sydney's west/ Blue Mountains.

cheers
Adrian

Depends how fussy you are, ADRAD can make them new with support brackets.
Should be able to order it through any radiator shop although I think that part number is for an aluminuim one. ALUM?
Tanks look a bit different and probably cant have the filler in the middle and I think 80mm is wider than original tanks.
I'm guessing $1000


If you have the original tanks you could design a core for ADRAD to hand make and get someone like 'C & C Radiators' in Kent Town SA to piece it all together.
Actually he'd be the man to design it for you and order in all the bits too.
I'm guessing $1200

Could also use the narrower ADRAD HQ tanks which probably look closer to correct and you can have the filler in the middle too.

Yes ! As others here have said but keep in mind though there were
Regular and Heavy Duty Radiators for this model Monaro.

I dont think Type.2 327 had a heavy duty option.
Were Type.1's both carry-over radiators from HR, someone mentioned that to me once?

Type.1
7437649 Standard
7438066 Heavy Duty

Type.2
2806340 standard (replaced 7437649 standard)

Yes, thanks Rigpig my hk parts book describes it as you have described above. do you know what the differences are between the 3 part numbers? I see the hoses are all the same between 307 and 327 type 1 and 2. The caps have 2 part numbers, 6 cylinder and 327 type 1 std rad share the same part number and the 327 type 2 and 307 AC or HDuty, 327 type1 Hduty or AC is another part number. looks like 2 core part numbers were used and the strap and bracket kits were the same.
