aluminum aradiader

i have a big desel 3 core eadeator in my truck and its leeking pritey bad and i think its pritey pluged up to and thats why my trucks been running so hot

i called 1 800 raidaders and thay wanted $300 for a 4 core, i was thinking about sumits 31x19 in. aluminum radeader with 2 1in. cores it seas it will out cool a 4 core and i have 2500 cfm fans, do you think this will keep a 454 with cam, pistons, 750 carb, intake, header cool?,

i know its a bit smaller than mine but i dont think mine is doing mutch, summit sead it should be fine as long as its under 12 to 1 compreshon, i dont know what kind of pistons its got but ther hier comreshon,it will still run on 92 octane so its probley under 12 to 1?

what do you think?

Re: aluminum aradiader

I got a 3 core from Advance Auto for $117 and they offered a 4 core for $170something I think. Take you measurements and then go to the store and dig through the catalogs.

Re: aluminum aradiader

Could you post after putting in the higher flow water pump? I'm interested in knowing how much of a difference it makes.

Re: aluminum aradiader

The short water pump should sit pretty tight against the block, the long one will have a large gap behind it, almost enough to stick your hand down behind the water pump. Keep in mind this is looking straight down at the water pump from above.
