radiator questions...

The radiator in the sami leaks a little. It has been repaired several times. It doesnt over heat or anything though.

I was thinking about putting in a bigger, aluminum radiator. Anyone done this? Do you have a part number?

A stock replacement from www.radiators.com is $114. Seems a little steep for such a small radiator.

What about measurements. If you have those handy, it would be nice, otherwise I can wait til later and measure it myself.

Re: radiator questions...

Find a "modine aftermarket holdings" and see if they will sell you one. They usually only sell to commercial accounts, but they have taken cash from me a couple of times. Ive paid $85.00 for the last two replacement radiators I have bought for various samurai's.

Re: radiator questions...

lightning conversions make an aluminum radiator for thier sbc conversions. i'm sure they are a little pricey but you would never overheat.
