the 4-row is indeed a "bolt-in replacement" eveything but the automatic fluid lines mached up perfectly, and the water outlet valve is on the opposite side from the stock rad. ( no mods needed ). no leaks,so far. i highly recommend it.

where can i find 20 wt oil? i searched 4 auto part stores, and when i asked for assistance they didn't know that a "SU" carb exsisted. i need some carb fluid now, exactly what kind of fluid would i use? some say tranny fluid, but what kind???

What type of climate are you in?

Hot and cold will affect what you should use. You can use motor oil in them (you are referring to the damping pistons I hope), some people use tranny fluid, some use Marvel Mystery Oil, some use motorcycle oil. I used plain old ATF in mine. Heck, norm doesn't even run his damping pistons if I recall correctly....

I used dexron in my 240, my local Z guru uses 20W50.

some people use houselhold 3 in 1 stuff or corn oil.. im gonna use a lighter oil instead of the atf.. revs up faster i think.. experiment.. the one good thing is when you overfill with atf then rev the car really high you get all the white smoke out the exhaust.. well the atf cleans the intake and head of carbon and burns it out..if you do enough you can cover your whole street.. my friend actually used to drip atf into his carb in his chevy and do it.

If you want to go with 20 wt oil both MSA and Vic British sell the stuff, but just about any oil will do.
