I'm planning on using one an aluminum Griffin crossflow radiator for the big block, and I was just wondering how you guys that have them went about mounting them in. Should I fabricate some brackets for the sides or are those clamp looking ones that fit over the top in the center a good choice. I would rather just buy than make the mounting, if they aren't too expensive.

The top clamp type brackets work well.

I think the best choice is stock type ford clamps for clamp in radiators...unfortunately the ones I found were a bit more expensive than I thought. I ended up fabricating a top clamp out of aluminum sheet and let the bottom lie directly in the small channel made by the members that attach to the radiator support (the members that the strut rod bolts to.) I used an old silicon sports computer wrist protector pad to cushion the bottom of the radiator It's not that pretty, but it has worked well for a while now.
