109 with Chevy v8

Hi!
Looking for pix of radiator installs for a S3 109 with a small block chevy and NV4500, ie: the engine is in the middle of the frame.
I found a 22x19 Griffin aluminum radiator that will fit, but the filler neck is on top, and I have concerns about the height of the neck fouling the hood.
Whatcha got?

On top as in the middle on top or to one side? This is the aluminum davis rad on my series 1. Had to trim the cap but it clears.

I installed a 4.3 into my '71 IIA. Originally, I used the recessed rad panel but it had to be radically modified. The best approach is to fit a 90/110 rad panel and hood to gain the room you really want. You'll have to modify the 90/110 hood hinges to attach to the series bulkhead.

I still have that full width BeCool radiator with the dual SPAL fans that was in the 109 when it had the 345 in it ( a time I wish to forget). It's virtually new, but kinda funky from kicking around for so long (spider farm). Fans still good, you just need new rubber flaps which you can get from SPAL very easily.
You are welcome to give it a try and if it fits, you can buy it. If not, I can get it back from you. I'll be up in Manchester MD in the near future, about halfway between us.

Mine is a bit smaller than you are after but I have the front of a power steering unit sitting on one side of the radiator and I wanted space for wiring and the prop rod on the other side. Off the shelf radiators are way cheaper than custom radiators so this is the off the shelf one I came up with that provided clearance for the power steering unit, the prop rod and the wiring harness.

Griffen Thermal Products, Chevy style, Part # 1-25241-X.
Overall height 15.5,
overall width 27.5
Thickness 3
Top outlet tube, 1.5
Bottom inlet tube, 1.75

The radiator sits on top of the front cross member and not behind it as stock. I use a Bosh electric pusher fan from a V8 Mercedes (junk yard special).

Picture below is earlier radiator with same outside dimensions The Griffin radiator has cap on other (passenger) side.
