Hello all,

Is there an easy way to identify which radiator support I have?  There are apparently 2 for 1976 (lucky me).   The support is still in the car, and I've looked at mine, versus pics online, and I'm not seeing any identifier that makes it simple for me to figure out which one I have in my car.

Thanks!

I believe the width is different.

Thank you for the quick reply and details.  I'll have to see if I can look up the dimensions of A versus B.

According to the DeWitts website, the late 76's got the 77 radiator.  It has a straight upper inlet pipe.  The normal 76 radiator has a curved upper inlet pipe.  Check out their website for pictures.
