[DML] re-aluminum core/plastic tank radiator

I had a cooling problem several years back that drove me crazy. I had no 
leaks, no air in the system, a properly working thermostat, and no head 
gasket problem. In a word or two, the system had all the apperances of being 
in excellent shape. I decided to pull the original radiator and discovered 
it to be about 75% blocked. The fins in the AC evaportaor are spaced quite a 
bit further apart than the original radiator. Junk; dirt, weeds, and even 
Montana grasshoppers can find their way through the evaporator and lodge in 
the radiator core. It's practicaly impossible to see this and just as 
impossible to hose the radiator core out with the evaporator covering the 
front and the fan shroud covering most of the back. As long as the work was 
done pulling the radiator I decided to get a three core  metal tank radiator 
from Rob Grady. I remember Rob telling me I may have to make some 
adjustments in the mounting holes but it fit perfectly. The fins are spaced 
about the same as the evaporator so there's less chance of the radator core 
becoming clogged without you knowing it. This solved my cooling problems 
ever since.
