Cooling this thing

September 25th, 2009 No comments

As my motor gets closer to coming together, I realize I need to get a cooling solution together too. Ray said my old radiator setup won’t work – it will overheat. Actually, he told me to “get into the new millenium” and buy a Howe Racing radiator. So, he gave the the part numbers for his cooling setup, which never overheats, even with his nearly 600HP motor on 100 degree days. So I’ll be getting a Howe Racing 342A Aluminum crossflow radiator. It will require a bit of customization of the mounting area to fit it, but it will be worth it. I’ll also be adding an electric fan, to replace the big crank-driven one that I currently have. This should be more efficient at moving the right amount of air through (it will be 2000CFM) and it will free up about 15HP since the crank doesn’t have to drive the old fan anymore.
