This radiator is for the 47-53 Chevy pickup and has dimensions of 18 ¼ wide and 27 ¼ tall plus the fill neck and the brackets on the side and without modification of an existing radiator support would not be a direct fit to the cars of the same vintage. Walker does show one in their older catalog but not one that we carry or offer. What we can offer is a radiator with superior cooling in an aluminum radiator under part number 10680139N. :This is an Afco radiator and the upper neck would be in the center of the tank and the lower neck would be on the right or passenger side. Overall height is 24” and width is 22 ¾”.

Walker WS70 Radiator Fan Shroud, Style F, 19-1/4 x 20-1/8 Inch
(Part #82070)
                        

Maximize your radiators effectiveness with a tight-fitting fan shroud. Use of these shrouds has produced temperature drops of up to 30 degrees!

Walker shrouds are vacuum formed from a very dense polyethylene. This high-impact, heat resistant material has a lightly textured, semigloss black finish. The cooling fan hole is not cut out so the installer can tailor that to the exact fan location and diameter.

See Application tab for application information.

Red Line 80204 Water Wetter Coolant Additive
(Part #91015709)
                        

Red Line Water Wetter Super Coolant additive is a unique wetting agent which reduces coolant temperatures by as much as 20° F. This is a liquid coolant treatment product which is designed to be added to solutions of antifreeze and water to help improve the heat transfer properties of glycol-based antifreeze. This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Improves the ability of coolant to wet heat transfer surfaces by 50%.

  • Reduces or eliminates bubbles that form on hot metal surfaces to reduce coolant temperatures by up to 20°
  • Superior heat transfer properties compared to glycol-based antifreeze
  • Compatible with new or used antifreeze (including DEX-COOL and long-life versions) to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems
  • Improves heat transfer and reduces cylinder head temperature
  • Designed for use with all modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze cooling systems
  • Cleans and lubricates water pump seals
  • Reduces cavitation and complexes with hard water to reduce scaling
  • Does not lower cooling system below the thermostatically-controlled temperature
  • 12 fl. oz. bottle treats 12-20 quarts
