Clay,
Your back glass should not have been anywhere near that expensive. Why didn't you inquire on this site as to your needing a back glass for your wagon?? I could have found a used back glass for that wagon for $50 down here.

I will never understand why no one seems to ever post anything in the "Wanted" section on this site!

Update 23/08/19

Quick update on current events. I replaced original rad and water pump with aluminum counterparts to fix cooling issues. Also installed 2 electric fans and new thermostat. For some reason, the car still overheats. Does not overheat with the electric fans on. I thought mabey it was overheating due to timing issues an my car was also hard to start. I reduced the advance on the distributor. My starting issue is fixed but still overheats. Timing was never done with a gun but seems to run fine. If you guys have any ideas as to what's going on please let me know. Thanks

My thoughts on looking at the radiator is you got a 4 core. When going for the aluminum the smaller number or cores are best. One will cool more the 2. But the 2 core B is the next best and seams more common. What are you running for a thermostat? Anything over a 180 deg F is unnecessary on the older car.

OK a couple of things. First why has the fan it came with from Chrysler been removed? Second have you made the same mistake a friend of mine did with his Lincoln limo Are the electric fans blowing in threw the radiator or are they blowing forward to the front grill? If so this will not cool it properly. Third in any case without the water pump mounted stock Chrysler fan there is NO WAY it will not overheat unless you run the electric fans. Put the factory fan back on thats what it was designed with. In the day I had many surplus 440 Dodge Plymouth and a few Chrysler cop cars NONE had electric fans (they did not exist then) and they were not prone to overheating. They were idled with the AC on for hours on end with no overheating issues. Also get rid of the cheap lamp cord battery cables and the Gypsy terminal ends find a truck repair shop that makes their own battery cables and have a correct positive and negative cables made before you have a fire and loose that beautiful rig.

Thanks for the reply guys. These are the facts...
-The rad is 3 core
-Im not sure what rating the thermostat is for, I just asked for one at napa and this is the one they gave me.
-the stock fan is still installed. When I took the picture the car was running so my camera did not pick it up.
-the electric fans are helper fans. One blows air towards the engine through the rad and one pulls air from the engine bay through the rad and out(like the stock fan).
-im not sure what lamp cord battery cables and gypsy terminal ends are. I'm sure that the electrical does need a good once over though.
though.
-I try to do my own work and probably contributed to the problem while fixing another, it happened before.
