radiator

Finishing up my 1.6L e.f.i. swap. What radiator should I use? Will the stock samurai work? Can I fab up the 1.6L, or should I get a 1.3L 3-core? Brad.

Re: radiator

I've never had any problems with my 1.3 radiator on my 1.6.

Re: radiator

I was planning on running an electric fan anyway. I'm pulling the regular fan/clutch off. Who's got the 3-cores?
Brad.

Re: radiator

I used a sidekick radiator with custom support bracket to cool my 1600 16v DOHC.
I used a Toyota Corola A/C electric fan.

Re: radiator

1.3 rad never worked when i did my conversion, even with an electric fan. I just fabed up some mounts for the 1.6 rad. Never installed the shroud either and never had a overheating problem since. There is 2 different size rads also. Make sure you get the one that is 20 1/2 inches across the top(I think). Lets you put it in between the steering box and frame.

Re: radiator

<font color="blue"> What I did on mine and it worked great was to run a electric fan and I removed the thermostat. It stayed at the setting I adjusted it too and it also never overheated.
