Radiator

Just finished the installation of my 489 dynoed to 567 hp in my 64 chevelle. Went with a alumitech rad but since I wanted a crossflow radiator I ordered a Camaro BB 67-69 rad, like the look of a crossflow better and since there never was any BB chevelles in 64 and it was what I wanted I built it the way I wanted. It was a very nice piece and almost a direct fit had to trim the support a little and the bracket on the radiator for the batterytray and the support to frame mounts theres limited room for washer jar and alternator regulator if you are going to run powersteering but since I removed both the washer jar and runs an internally regulated alternator there was plenty of room. But the best part it seems to cool my new engine without a problem I´m running dual spals but the termostat switch hasent turned them on yet, but it´s still not real summer here in Sweden think it was around 65 degrees last weekend this weekend it´s going to be 85 degrees but I´m sure it won´t have any troubles cooling the engine the spals really move air when they starts to running have them hooked both thru the termostat switch and a on/off switch so I can force them to run. It´s a short waterpump setup. Thanks Don!

Re: Radiator

Interesting concept ...most cross flow conversions use a smaller core and no room for the twin spall set up .. tight between the frame rails but shes in there .
Well now i know if somebody wants to go that route it will fit .. thanks for the in put and pics .
go get them Volvos !!!

Re: Radiator

Good Job, you won't be able to keep rear tires on that ride.

Re: Radiator

Marcus. If I may ask, where did you install the thermostatic switch to cycle the fans on and off on the engine?

Looks great.

Re: Radiator

Chris mounted it on the intake since I have an airgap intake theres two waterbosses in the rear of the intake do not know if it΄s the ultimate place, but it made the wiring more invisible.

Re: Radiator

Sweet ride.
Thank you very much for posting this. I need to replace the radiator on my '64 300 on the cheap and the '69 Camaro radiator is at least $50 cheaper and it's a 3 core and not a 2 core, at least with the OEM replacement sites. I actually have a '69 radiator in the car now and didn't know it until I measured it, found this post and then looked for an oem raidator and the specs are spot on. Thanks again man you saved me!

Re: Radiator

If I may ask, which radiator hoses are you using? I went down to my local NAPA and they couldn't really help me, since my 66 had a center outlet for the upper hose. They offered to let me buy them all, figure out which one fits and bring the rest back- but I dont want to go through all that hassle.
Thanks!!

Re: Radiator

The top one is Camaro 69 BB and the lower one Camaro BB 68 had to cut both to fit proper.
