Radiators should be the same. Seems odd, but I just was looking through a bunch of radiator specs and the 3.0 and 4.0 had the same part listed for both.

Considering I started a progress thread, is it a secret? Either way, I consider having to locate a few oem parts merely a distraction or inconvenience that is understandable when putting a newer engine in a truck it was never meant for. If Ford never made parts that would work...that would be a little more of a difficulty.
