Flow Kooler for 304 questions

Has anyone used the flowkooler? Its supposed to provide better low rpm cooling. I have to replace my waterpum anyway so I thought about going with it. Any bad experiences?

Where's the cheapest place to get it? Summit has them for $79.95 but they're on backorder for three weeks...

Re: Flow Kooler for 304 questions

We just put one on our 258 and it made an instant noticeable improvement. We also had put one on our Wagoneer, when we had it, it had the 360. Can't say how much of a difference it made, because we replaced the radiator, which was leaking at the same time. But before we did both those things, it was overheating & afterward it was fine. We bought ours from Summitt. I don't know if Jegs sells them or not...

Re: Flow Kooler for 304 questions

Mechanic at the local jeep shop (Toy Box, Holly Hill, Fl) swears by them. He builds jeeps all day, and knows what difference it makes. I haven't personally put one in mine yet, but haven't needed to replace, and didn't have a cooling system worth a darn yet anyway, so no point. but dual fans going in tomrrow.

Re: Flow Kooler for 304 questions

I used one on mine, didn't notice any real improvement in cooling, it also failed, started leaking like a seive, after a couple years. In talking with a circle track guy in Albuquerque who runs a radiator shop, he says the trick to Flowkoolers is a smple disc riveted to the impeller to close it. He does it to stock pumps all the time and says it really helps. I took the FK apart when it went toes down and he was right, a slightly smaller impeller with a disc riveted to it to close the impeller vanes.

I think summit sells the disk for the impeller for $6 or so.

Brassworks Flow Kooler Conversion Disc

But Summits page on that item is blank. you can bring up the water pump but not the conversion disk kit.
