It's been to long ago that I forget what mounts and brackets hold the new radiator.  Does anyone have the ford diagrams?
I need a diagram of mounting points.  Where do mounts go?  I took it apart years ago and bare core support and have all brackets/mounts, except rubbers that cushion radiator, if they used rubber on mounts?
 
thanks

Welcome to the forum!  Feel free to introduce yourself in the Welcome Mat.
I don't have a diagram to post, but there isn't too much to it.  The rad support sits on the rad support bushings.  There is a bushing that sits under the frame, one on top of the frame between the frame and the rad support and there is a washer on the top of the rad support with no bushing.
There are lots of pics of the bushing setup here:
 
 
The rad sits on two rubber insulators that go inside the rad support itself.  The top of the rad is held in place with two brackets with rubber insulators.
 
The upper brackets look like this:
 
 
Part numbers for all bushings including rad support is located here:

thanks for reply, I did order the top mounts per you link. I still need bottom mounts. I am currently installing core support mounts using the energy suspension. previous post of pics showing order and complete unit does not show using original spacers or washers ?  Do I just need to get the bolt and nut and not  use any of originals? thanks for any help

thanks, I have the top coming from your lead. I took week off and now these 2 little pieces of rubber is holding back a lot. Of course when you do a swap from 351 to a 460, I have been delayed at each step. All drive train is out of a 78 Lincoln mark 5. I have got many parts from oem parts that is a great place, because he sells the parts with all brackets attached. I think I will call it Ranchero Mark V  thanks for your help !
