Default Scout 800a/b radiators

So it's been 2 years I've been searching for a radiator for my scout, Actually two radiators.
I have a 69 and a 71, and both with the 232 inline six. I've purchased two parts scouts with 232s and both radiators were junk. The issue is it costs $400 to re core a radiator, and 400 to have one made out of aluminum. It's just not in my budget.
So my buddy with Jeeps, early cjs, had a spare radiator that looks perfect, same inlet and outlet spot, and also same dimensions.
My question is, have any guys used jeep radiators for the inline six scout 800s? There seem to be few guys running the 232s but I'm hoping for some feedback. Thanks!

I am sure with modifications, a SII radiator with a 232 will fit. I have managed to put a SII V-8 Radiator into a V-8 800b. A good radiator shop can do it, just have the side tanks shoved in and re-soldered.

Don't know why the Jeep radiator couldn't be adapted, probably pretty easily. Another option is the Summit 'universal' aluminum radiator, you can kind of pick and choose sizes on those to fit what you have. Pay attention to the inlet and outlet locations, they have 'Ford' and 'Chevy' locations and they're opposite. They run about $160 which is way cheaper than a recore, but it would take some work to make it fit.

That $400 would be just a standard 3r core im sure. That would be fine for a 232. My cost on that core from my supplier is over $300 now. Copper is through the roof still.

A nice HD3R recore will run you $600ish.

Yeah hard to swallow at 600, since thats more than I usually pay for my scouts.

Small update:
I bought a brand new copper radiator through my mechanics supplier, only $140 plus tax!
Installed in my scout in about 45 minutes, just had to drill 4 extra holes for mounting and works like a charm!

Can you give up some details, mfg. model number etc... I've got a 69 that is in dire need of a radiator. Recore pricing is absurd.

Wish I could help you, no part numbers or names for manufacturing. My buddy threw them away before I could get them,
If you go to a Jeep catalog though you can get a brand new one there for $220, and the crazy thing is if you ebay search Jeep CJ7 Radiator, there is an all aluminum 3 core $150 shipped. Can't beat that!
