What's in the Box

When it comes to the cooling performance of these radiators, they are second to none. AFCO Aluminum radiators allow your car to remain at a constant temperature, which means that power delivery is more consistent. The uniformity of an all-aluminum construction radiator allows for the best pound for pound heat transfer characteristics.

These radiators can cruise the fairgrounds with a high horsepower Big Block in the heat of the summer. No problem.

NOTE: Due to the modified nature of these vehicles, some radiators will require a minimum of drilling, etc. to mount.

Radiator Mounting Kit, Black Steel
                        

Mount your radiator correctly! Kit includes two 3/8"-24 x 2-1/4" mounting bolts, lock nuts, washers, springs, and a pair of rubber cushions approximately 1/8" thick.

This radiator mounting kit is an OEM way of mounting the radiators on the early vehicles. The early vehicles had frames that were not of the same quality as today’s modern frames and also the roads were less than desirable and created a lot of body and frame flex and twist. This style kit eliminated damage to the radiator from the frame flex to a rigid mounted radiator. In today’s hot rod applications or OEM installations there are a couple of mounting options. The rubber pad goes between the frame and the radiator mounting flange. The spring can sit above the radiator mount tab or down below the lip of the frame. The bolt and applicable washer go through the mounting hole and spring and is retained by the included lock nut. Nut is tightened enough to put tension on the spring in the desired amount and thus letting the radiator absorb frame flex or twist by compression of the spring.
