Go to your local salvage yard and get one from a Honda or similar.

6pack,

do you currently use one of these radiators? what do you have it in, I'm considering something like this for my 460, but I want to make sure I have enough cooling.

thanks, Rusty

Oliver 88 w/320... Have the electric fan to run too, but not always on... 1 thing you have to do is, make it so any air that comes through grill HAS to pass through radiator.... I used card board and duct tape when I put it in to make a shroud around it, but now I ripped it all out to use aluminum sheet metal.... Oh! I am using a stock water pump, but I am gonna try an electric shur-flo? Rv pump of some sort... I will be putting it back together in a couple weeks and try to take a pic

There is an additive I use called 40 below that helps reduce water temp, i only noticed about 15 degrees cooler...I use that and just water... No thermostat just a 7/8 hole in a plate....

Look on ebay as there are some bigger hot rod radiators to use too, but cost a lot more

I'll be about the same motor wise, and planned on an electric fan and stock waterpump also.

I run.. I think its called engine ice in my 4 wheelers...maybe something similar.


Thanks for the help!!

You can take the radiator to any good radiator shop and they can change the inlets and outlets to what ever size and position you want, I did and the price was not very high. The one I used had the neck on the side and I had it moved to the center and also moved the return.
