Radiator

This sucks. I have a flat spot on the top outlet of my radiator and it trickles. I'm going to get a new aluminum 3 core. Kinda sucks that I have to get a new radiator for something so dumb.

That does suck, but aluminum is better cooling anyway though.

3 row radiator is nice. Changed all coolant/heater hoses. Now I need electric fans and I'll be set.

Yes, figured the water pump was done just before I bought it and I put the new 3 row aluminum radiator in, why not change all the hoses. Now I'm pretty sure I won't have a problem with my cooling system this summer. The original radiator worked good just trickled because the top inlet was bent a little.

Make sure you get a good set of fans. Dont buy a cheap ebay fan or something. I have been down that road. The stock clutch fan is very powerful so it takes a good fan to be equivalent.

Ok, thx for the tip. I was reading about using a fan from a contour. Minor adjustment and it drops right in

I think that's what mine came off or something similar. Damn it I don't remember now. But most factory style electric fans should be up to the task.
