Q & A

What's in the Box

Walker Cobra Series radiators boast a relatively thin, but efficient, high-flow copper core which is ideal for use with mild Small Block engines with stock or low compression ratios. Each radiator is built for a direct fit with heavy gauge steel side brackets and standard mounting holes pre-stamped. Plus, all radiators feature a built-in oil cooler for use with automatic transmissions. They work with original, reproduction, steel or fiberglass grille shells.

  • Copper core w/ 1-piece brass tanks
  • Vertical tubes every 1/4" and 17 fins per inch of height
  • Heavy duty 12 Ga. steel side brackets w/ pre-drilled holes
  • Use a 15-18 lb. radiator cap
  • Brass drain cock
  • Simple bolt-in install w/ no modifications to grille or grille shell

Walker WS40 Radiator Fan Shroud, Style A, 20 x 21 Inch
                        

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.

AFCO Aluminum Radiators 1937 & 1939 Chevy Car
                        

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.

For 1937 and 1939 Chevrolet passenger cars (not 1938 models).

  • 100% Aluminum construction (no epoxy)
  • Furnace brazed core
  • Tanks are made of .080” 3003 aluminum for strength and durability
  • TIG welded by skilled craftsmen in the USA
  • Factory pressure-tested
  • Filler necks feature screw-in bleed – won't crack or leak with age

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

                        At one time or another we all have had a car overheat. These fan/shroud combos are just the ticket to avoid having it happen again. These 2500 CFM pull-type fans measure 2-5/8" deep at the motor, 2-3/8" at the mounting brackets and 1-1/2" at the high impact shroud.
  • 24.44" wide x 19" high
  • Can be easily reduced in size to 21-5/8" wide x 17-1/4" high
  • 12 volt operation
  • Lower engine operating temperatures
  • Saves horsepower

Red Line 80204 Water Wetter Coolant Additive
                        

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
