    I want to know how you checked this Quad 4 for ignition fire to be sure that is your trouble! I just wanted to know if the engine was cranking because frankly the starter is the only thing up front you could have "knocked something loose" on while installing a RADIATOR!! If it were a V/6 it's a different story!
