I've, maybe unwisely, purchased an aftermarket aluminum radiator for my '55 There must be some brackets I still need to purchase? What I currently have is, unlike the original radiator that has a bracket welded down the sides that allows you to screw the radiator to the u- shaped original mounting bracket, there doesn't appear to be anyway to secure this new radiator to my original u-shaped mounting bracket. Any help would be great!!:confused0006:

Was the radiator made for a 55? Is it a V-8 or 6 cyl. radiator? A tri-5 radiator should have mounting brackets either towards the front for a V-8 or toward the back for a 6 cyl core support.

No, it was not made for a '55. It's an aftermarket aluminum Wysco 24" x 19" rectangular radiator. My car is a V-8, the mounting brackets toward the front. The new radiator has no visible mounting brackets which is why I'm guessing I need to buy or make some.
