Re: How many \"cores\" is my radiator?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] Er.....ah....not to put too fine a point on it,[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] but the CORE of a radiator is that portion which is between the tanks.......the part that is finned. The TUBES are the water passages that go through the core of the radiator. You can usually count them by peering through the filler neck, or looking closely through the core. Sometimes the rows of tubes are staggered to catch the air better. Many of the older cars had four row radiators because the older engines did not cool well. Nowadays, three rows is considered a heavy cooling option.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
