Probably the part that bothered me the most was that since I had problems with an aftermarket radiator I had purchased used, I called this vendor (who comes recommended by many on this site), and specifically asked if this radiator would fit properly, and explained to him the issue with the other one. He assured me I would have no problems. The only reason I did not call return the radiator and demand my purchase cost and shipping back was due to the fact I damaged it trying to make it fit (I was sure this was the only way to get my tractor going in time for hay season). I knew there was no way they would even talk to me after I drilled for the shroud, and punched a hole in the core. I admit the majority of the parts I purchased from them are fine, but radiator and tie rod boots certainly were not among them. I noticed on their site now it lists the radiator dimensions as "Its dimensions, size, construction and appearance is close to the original". Kinda like "almost right". Reminds me of a used fender I purchased for a pickup a couple years ago.......they said it was a good straight fender, ready to paint, but when I received it they had wrapped it in saran type wrap, and slapped a shipping label on it. It arrived with 3 creases in the fender which was worse than the one I had, so I ended up using my original, but I ended up getting my credit card charges reversed, and told the seller he could pick up the worthless fender. end of rant, but I am still sore over that radiator. :-)
