It is referring to how the radiator mounts. Either bottom mounted to tabs on the crossmember or side mounted to the grille.

Questions: I have a 1953 M38A1. What exactly do I measure to find out which cap I need? Also, I have seen 7lb and 4lb caps sold as NOS. How do I know which is proper? Which is standard for your M38A1 replacement radiator (805825)? Thank you.

We typically use a 4lb cap for the 4-134 engines. You just need to measure your neck size to confirm yours.

Questions: I have a 1950 Sedan Delivery with what I think is the original radiator. It looks like the radiator cap doesnt seat correctly. It looks like the depth of the radiator neck is 1 deep where as the rubber seals on the cap only measure 3/4. So when the motor heats up, the cap doesnt seal and it just goes out the overflow hose. I checked other aftermarket caps and they also measure 3/4. Does this sound correct or am I just missing something?

Sounds like you need part number: 648746 if you have the small style. This part number is for the 2-7/8 neck.
