Doing some more research based on 1958 Delivery's info, looks like I can boil the choices down to the following dual core aluminum radiators:
DeWitts - 1 inch tubes
Classic Performance- 1 inch tubes
BeCool - 1 inch tubes
Griffin - 1 1/4 inch tubes
Probably out of consideration is:
Frostbite - 4...
I guess a better question would be, what is a good resource for cooling basics?
For example, why is one tube size good for copper but not as optimal for aluminum?
From what I've seen, tube sizes for aluminum range from 5/8 to 1 1/4.
Which is better, Crossflow or Downflow?
I've been looking in to cooling solutions and saw this come up:
In short, 4 row aluminum radiator with fans and shroud.
I expect this will fit without the stock shroud in place, even though it is 6.25 inches...
Next question, how do I measure spark plug wire length?
Right now, in a straight line, it is between 6 and 7 inches from the end of the coil pack to the tip of the spark plug.
I'm not sure what kind of boot angles would be helpful either. These are LS3 coil packs.
Been away for a bit with a new job and staying on top of family. But today I got my valve covers back from my neighbor who did some work for me. I now have a bracket I can mount my coil packs on, over the valve cover.
Thought I'd pass along a couple of pics.
The nut zerts won't interfere with...
After taking a break from work on my 59, I've decided to give it some attention. I'm putting all the accessories on the engine and checking clearances.
Soon on the list is large tube headers for the 431. It's been a while since I've looked into the options and curious what is available and worth...
Here's more of a thought experiment more than a reality check.
Google created the deepest darkest color of black.
There has got to be a better application than a BMW:
What is everyone...
Outside of TV, I didn't know her at all. I encouraged my daughters to watch as encouragement for whatever they want to do.
While I'm sad she has died, if I had to choose a way to go, it would doing something I love!
