RE: Radiator/ Electric Fan / Controller Help



Who is the mfgr. Bill?  Northern Radiator?  Griffin touts 1.25 to 1.50” tubes but is quite pricey.

SO...after doing some more hunting, I'm finally going with a Cold Case, aluminum 2 row, & 1.25" tubes. As compared to everyone else out there offering the 1.25" tube option anywhere (from $550 +s/h, to over $750), they are reasonably priced ($340 shipped) and have a lifetime warranty, and have provisions for a stock shroud. Also made less than 2 hours away from me in Northern Philly.


Can't wait for Uncle Sam to send my tax refund and get this thing cut loose!!

Thanks Don.

 

I'm definitely seeing the electric fan scenarios as a huge snowball right now. It's making 405 hp and it's doing exacty that...melting down in traffic.

I think you are on the right track with the spacers and larger fan. Get that fan in the shroud. I race a 500HP engine with a fan shroud and seven blade factory fan with no issues.When I ran this car on the street with about 425HP and no shroud it would about melt down in traffic.

 

And, do the test Gary suggested. I don't think you need to spend money on that radiator and electric fan stuff until you are really putting out the HP.

Enzo,

 

Thanks for the info. 

 

My issue seems to be airflow at idle, while driving down the road is fine. I do have a factory shroud but my current setup has the fan outside the shroud's mouth.

 

I managed to locate a .75" longer fan clutch over the weekend to hopefully get the fan into the shroud. Also found a fan blade thats 1" larger in diameter that should fill the shroud better. Im hoping that these with a new aluminum 2 row radiator with 1" or 1.25" tubes will fix me up.

Hi Bill   I may be a  little late to the party
but here is the info I sent To David ;last year :

Hi David             I have the identical Hemi set up in my car 
it began life with an alum 3 row rad and (2) 10" plastic electric fans

it was warm and progressively got warmer   200-215 for a 25 mile ride on open roads

did some searching this winter '/ spring ….  finally settled on a Glen Ray Radiator unit c/w metal shroud and a

Hayden flex as per Bob Schirmer's recommendation   My temp now barely exceeds 180   (maybe 190 in traffic)

but all works to a tee and I now enjoy and trust driving the car again

hope this helps

Enzo

 Even though I've always
 stuck with stock style configurations when it comes to
 anything to do my car, I'm tired of being scared of
 sitting in traffic, and watching my temperature
 rise. 
 I'm seriously thinking about getting an
 aluminum radiator and electric fan combination (never used
 one before). So far I'm leaning towards Champion
 radiators (lifetime warranty), three core set up, and a 16
 in single Spal puller fan, and harness w/controller. The
 above package is $500 shipped.
 But I'm a little concerned about their
 harness and as it seems to have some light wiring
 gauges.

 Not sure whether I should maybe use a
 "Spal" harness and controller like
 this...

 The other issue is that the above controllers
 have a set temperature (185 on I believe). Should i use a
 programmable setup like this instead if i want to tweak the
 temp?

 Any insight would be appreciated.
 Thanks
