  • Dummy filler neck in OEM location - accepts stock type caps & accessories
  • Works with original, reproduction steel, or fiberglass grille shells
  • Copper core w/ 1-piece brass tanks
  • Vertical tubes every 1/4" and 12 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

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

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.
