Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

John, I got this info from Bruce, another 4.3L guy who was VERY HELPFUL, not like many a$$holes who did this swap. Why people won't offer up info is beyond me. Enjoy :-)
From a 1965-66 Ford Mustang V8 4.7L. I've attached a spec pic from the Transpro website but you can get the same rad from Canadian Tire too, a Modine part.
Try this link too, it goes straight to the Transpro website to the rad.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

Yea Danny, I run a closed circuit and shut it down every 5 minutes to cool [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

I run all day at 210, I want to be less than 195.
I toasted a tranny because I was running the thin red line, and don't want to do it again.

Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

Yes they do. I know for example that Griffin has this one in aluminum but they're expensive, something like $500 US!!! Not for me. I'm just going to use some Water Wetter, a high flow water pump and have my computer programmed to keep things cool, with a 160 or 180 stat. We'll see...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

Just found a very helpful shop on the internet at

http://www.carradiator.com/en/index.cfm

They did some cross referancing with the Ford , Chevy S10 and found a 93 Chevy Truck V6 4.3 rad that fits the bill for 139.00!!!!!!! it is a single core 1.5" aluminum rad with plastic tanks. If it cools the 1/2 ton, it will cool mine. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

John, any idea what the rad size was that they offered you? I didn't realize there were actually people there answering my messages! LOL I thought it was going to be animated... doh!
Any more info on that rad?

Thanks,
Steve

Re: 4.3 coooooooling?

John,
Isn't the width a problem? Or, did you outboard a different steering box? Just curious.
