Time For a Radiator

Post #1 by sixty5mustang » Sun Mar 26, 2017 12:52 pm

What radiator should I go with? My brass one is leaking at the tank. I soldered it twice and am tired of messing with it.
I have a mild 200 build with Weber 2 barrel conversion, 30 over, cam with 1:6 roller rockers. It was running a little warm last summer but nothing too crazy. Should I get a replacement from the parts store or one of the aluminums off ebay?


thanks

I'm researching the same thing right now. Champion seems to make a nice aluminum in a couple varieties for six cylinder mustang's

Maybe I missed it but speedway doesnt carry Champion and the only non $500 radiators they have are generics without brackets or tranny coolers.

I went with a BBK aluminum radiator off of Ebay. It works great. On a 70 degree day the engine will barely hit 120 degrees. on a 80 degree day it hits 150 degrees in traffic. Havent had it out on a 90 degree day to check it out on yet. Very happy with it so far.
