Rated Cap: 60 bodies
8.2 radiator capacity.

I have an 86 ford b700 with an 8.2 NA. I have all of the original build sheets mechanics records for 25-years until I bought it and I have searched the web trying to find the capacity?
I have a copper top and bottom radiator and am starting to chase small pin holes around that only show up around 190-200 degrees or what I assume is normal operating temp.?
I am thinking that if my old radiator is starting to show issues on the top cap then the bottom cap is probably held together by rust and sediment so no flushing for me.
I want the capacity of fluid so I can find a suitable replacement.
Can't go wider cause it won't get airflow cause of headlight trim, can't go taller cause of hood but could go thicker if I went to electric fans cause with what I have now I can barely put my finger between the blade and the radiator fins.
Any thoughts.
