    Dunno about present disposition, but in '13 I ordered a std replacement from Autozone. It was for non A/C, even at that time I could not find anyone that could get a A/C rad.

    Yellow,

    That is the EC339 which is the standard 2-row. I am looking at the AE339 which is still 2-row but has 1" tubes and is about $15 more. That price pretty well matches the Ledfoot site, but provides free shipping to boot, where Ledfoot gets nearly $30 to ship.

    Good catch on the tube size, I assumed that since it was a 2 row that they would be 1". You really have to pay attention to get the correct one. I have three row in both my Mavericks and they do okay

    Hey all,

    We've got one of the AE339 radiators on the way from George. Nice fellow, is apparently the son of Cid's good friend who was in business with him. Custom work comes with an $80 fee now and delay, so we will deal with the petcock where it is. I chose to spend a few more $$ as he is supposed to ship today and I should have the part in 4 or 5 days, most of the others were more likely towards labor day. All of the sites showing the cc339 for sale aren't keeping up the supply chain, as they don't have them right now (though he said he had one or two in the back, tucked away). I expect this radiator to do fine until we add the A/C back on (who knows how far away that may be) and if the radiator is struggling, we can add an auxiliary fan at that time.

    Other than Champion, what's a good brand? The 2-Row is Out of Stock on Champion's site.

    I like the angled corners on the top of the tank a lot better than the Champions
