Walker tech no help. Not an exact fit. N

March 09, 2014
I had heard that Walker was the best. I will agree that it is the most expensive. Numerous bent fins when unpacked. Wish I had checked an aluminum one. Due to negative feedback, I do not expect this to be posted on Speedway.
Cons:
  • not worth the premium price
No, I would not recommend this product.

what electric fan relay and shoud should i use

Answers

Jason
The relay required for the majority of the electric fans offered by Speedway are 40 amp such as number 91064109. If you run the ultimate Cooling Machine then the relay suggested by the manufacturer is a 70 amp and offered under # 91051000. The relay needs to service the needs of the cooling fan used.

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.

  • Dummy filler neck in OEM location - accepts stock type caps & accessories
  • 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

Small Block Ford engines can take advantage of the less expensive and more readily available "Chevy" radiators by using a passenger side inlet water pump (such as our 910-15544) and get additional steering box/fuel pump clearance to boot!
