    The correct code for a 1970 Z28 4 speed radiator is CT Should be embossed in the passenger side tank below the fill neck about half way down. I don't believe AB is correct.

    Dont buy it unless it has the letters CT is on the right passenger side tank about half way up the tank above the lower hose, and the right side tank has the harrison logo stamped on outer edge to about 3/4 the distance from the bottom and it must be a 2 core radiator. I made the mistake of buying a z28 radiator on ebay for $300 and another $300 to redo and It aint no z28 radiator. Although if its the correct size harrison radiator probrably a 3 core without tranny cooler will work for a substitute for a $100 max that is all i would pay for that radiator possibly needing recored. If pics are needed i have about 10 pics of original z28 radiators still learning how to post pics if needed i can make it happen.

    Here are pic's of the 1970 Z28 radiator. As noted above, the tank side with the filler hole has tha "Harrison" logo. The tanks must be stamped with the "CT" and "IA" codes. The "LF" is the fully assembled radiator code.
