Re: Diesel cooling system upgrades
Since it's an 87 it has the old style copper core / brass tank type radiator. I said "Give me the biggest, baddest radiator they make." He said they only make one. It's 35" wide x 20" high. It originally came with the 6.2L. When it went, the previous owner wanted to replace it with a new crate motor instead of a rebuilt and by then they had stopped making the 6.2 new and now only offer the 6.5 as a replacement. It's only a difference of .3L so I don't see the engine size being a factor. It has a Banks 6.2L Turbo system complete with Banks exhaust system and it's been on since the truck was 6 months old. Oh...and the fan clutch is new too. If there were a way to set up an electric fan to come on and off by itself rather than with a toggle switch, I'd consider it.
