New rad in my 2 litre saloon
« on: May 09, 2019, 11:51:53 »
Yep I know it's not an AC rad but the neither is my engine. I found the old AC rad could not cope with cooling engine so sourced a USA Triumph TR6/250 rad 4 core job. offered up and a bit long so the lower pipe now runs under and up behind the cross member with original  TR6 pipes and an alloy connector to adjust the angle. Top pipes are TR6 with a fan thermo switch joiner fitted. The rad actually sits on the original AC brackets and rubbers. I made a new alloy sheet that fits in the nose cone with a dropped front to scoop up a bit more air. Now,all I need to do is fit the AC rad shroud with a couple of mods.

So Far so good.

Nothing is impossible, but sometimes it takes a different approach. Now anyone got a big hammer?
