Looking for a Radiator

my 74 F350 dump is running hot then I like it has an original radiator in it still. looking for some options for a large Aluminum radiator and maybe an electric fan. Any help would be great.

I've never bought from them but radiatorexpress has them with electric fans. Jegs has the radiator as well but I didn't dig enough to see if they have the electric fan options.

Looks like there are other options too.

Champion radiators are who all my groups use...I've only seen one failure, and that was in a mud pit spinning 6k rpm for a few minutes.

You need to measure your radiator before you replace it, because...

1973/78 F100/350 with round headlamps: TWO different radiator supports!

The support used with the Super Cooling radiator (measures approx. 26 1/4" wide x 24 3/4" high) has a larger opening radius.

Standard, extra cooling and A/C radiators measure approx. 26 1/4" wide x 19 3/4" high.

I'd be lying if I didn't say there was video of it somewhere, and the run may have been in 2wd.
