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.

I am literally in the same boat as you. I called up Champion (68 Mustang here as well) and he said their 6cyl fitting radiator is the CC329. There may be others they sell that would technically fit, but this one has the exact OEM mounting specs. They also noted shipping to lower 48 is flat $29.

Here's a link to the radiator from their site:

Hope that helps!

not a bad price but the BBK radiator I bought for less money. Also it has a stamped aluminum top tank that looks a lot better in my opinion.
Thanks
