New Core support with A/C

Hi, a search did not yield what I was looking for, or if it did, I missed it.

I'm having a hard time finding a radiator core support for my 1997 F-250 diesel WITH A/C. The dealer has them for $500.00 but I'm trying to find one cheaper. LMC told me they do not sell them. Anyone have any ideas? All the junkyard trucks in this area are probably rotted. I'm going to call a few southern part distributors to see if they can get me one.


Thanks

Mark

Re: New Core support with A/C

Pershing Auto has them . They are close to you in Illinois I think . Any aftermarket bodypanel place should be able to get them for around 180.00

Re: New Core support with A/C

Bad news....

I had NDP take a few measurements, and I found they don't have the one I'm looking for.

Most reproductions I have tried are too narrow at the bottom, and the "channel" at the bottom is too narrow to fit the radiator and AC components. The factory one measures about 5 and 1/2 inch's in this channel, and the reproductions usually measure about 2 and 1/2 inch's.

NDP said thier reproductions measured about 2 and 1/2 at the bottom, while thier ford original measured about 5 and 1/2 inches.


I have sent an email to pershing awaiting thier reply.


Thanks

Get the Ford one, and PAINT it. Factory only painted it on the front, the rest was primer, and that's why they rust out.

I just replaced mine last fall, but it was more like 300 from the dealer. Took 3 days and it came out of Michigan, they're getting harder to find, maybe that's why they told you 500.

Re: New Core support with A/C

I get shop prices on dealer prices. I have to check to see if it was 500 retail or 500 shop price.

I might have to bite the bullet and get the ford one.

Re: New Core support with A/C

Bad news-

Got the price from ford- 500


Good news

I found a complete 95 powerstroke with a good condition core support for
$650 Some minor repairs will need to happen, but it is in considerably better shape than the other one. (plus the PSD sopposedly runs, I just have to throw a starter in it, unless the guy is a complete lair. My buddy is an aquaintnce of him, so hopefully he is right.)
