Close To Original Configuration 4 Row Copper/Brass Construction Maximum Cooling Capacity Mounts On Engine Side Of Core Support This Chevy Desert Cooler Optima copper core V8 radiator is the best cooling down-flow copper core radiator you can buy. It is constructed with 4 rows of ? vertical down-flow cooling tubes on 5/16 centers with a 2-5/8 thick core. The 5/16 tube spacing actually gives enough additional tubes to equate the radiator to a 6-row radiator! The brass top and bottom tanks are ribbed with the inlet and outlets in the stock location. This V8 position radiator is flanged to mount behind the core support bar. This configuration requires use of a short water pump small block so the fan will clear the radiator core. The bottom tank on this automatic transmission radiator includes a built-in transmission cooler. In addition, the overflow tube requires the addition of a rubber hose extension in order to dump at the bottom like the steel original did. Additional items you may want to purchase include radiator cap P/N 18-31 or 209-90 and petcock P/N 18-116. Also be sure to consider new upper & lower radiator hoses and clamps when you purchase a new radiator. This new Chevy Desert Cooler Optima V8 position automatic transmission copper core radiator is ready to bolt-in and replace your leaky, overheating original with 4-rows of super-cooling!
