 I'm tempted to use my jigsaw to open up around the cap on mine (77 AMX 304 two core rad I just put in and the hood won't close now)
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

I see your radiator is bent a little bit on the left side. I just got one and mine is bent in the EXACT same spot. Did you have to bend the bracket to make it work?

Mine arrived that way, looks like it got damaged a bit during transit.  I may have bent it back a little, but that wasn't really an issue.
