Re: 272 oil pump prime

you can tell if the shafts are on right at a glance.if the overflow pipe is at the front on the pass side and the rear on the drivers they are correct.

Re: Radiator woes

they are the right ones as the only other ones that fit are 6 cyl ones and they will set your engine back.the opening in the mounts faces rearward.
