On my 87 Conquest at the bottom of my radiator I have 2 ports for coolant sensors. I'm looking at rockauto right now, and one of the radiators specifies it doesn't have ports for coolant sensors, but the other one doesn't specify and when I look at the picture for the Spectra radiators's picture it doesn't show coolant ports. Has anyone bought a Spectra Radiator from Rock Auto with coolant sensor ports?

If they don't come with coolant ports, is there a way around them? I need a new radiator..

Doubtful they have the temp sensor bungs. Those have been NLA for a long time now. Best thing to do is get your bungs removed from the old radiator and brazed into the new one at a radiator shop.

It looks like they are just connected to the fans, I couldn't just reroute them?

So from what I can see.... I may go with this with the shroud and the fans.... Anyone know where I could get it cheaper?  Trying to not spend $400 for a full radiator setup, but will if I have to it seems.

Stock fans are better.
I currently have a shroud setup I feel in slow traffic the car runs a lot
hotter then without. I also sealed my shroud on all outer edges.
