so if you used anti-freeze ment for aluminum blocks, used proper mounting for the pipe, i dont think there should be a prob for a long long time

for about 2 years now ( maybe more now ) I am using a 2 core aluminum radiator, a fan out of a cop car and for the lines I have used EMT or Conduit as some call it. I have checked and there is no rust at all. I had my rad mounted up high for a while and then moved it down to below the rear window and it actually seems to cool better at street speeds, maybe its getting better air from under the truck IDK. I also have the air trapped in the engine thing. when I dry out the system for whatever reason. I run a hose to the intake side of the water pump line at the radiator and run the engine untill it gets water and shoots out rather hastily. then the engine is shut down and I hook everything back up, add 2 gallons of antifreeze and finish off with water. All is good. Also, my fan is controlled by the computer as far as on and off goes, and I run no thermostat. It stays at about 185 - 190 which is what its set to operate at.

it can be, most is.
But apart from the cost difference, is there any reason not to run copper?

(And for this little bit of tubeing I dont think the price of copper would break the build)

my rad has a 1 1/2" intake port, and a 1 3/4" outlet. It's not exactly easy finding 1 3/4" copper tubing, at least in my parts. Adapters might work, but i've looked and havnt found anything at the local hardware stores. So i just said screw it and got some easy to get ahold of 1 3/4" exhaust tubing, sure its not the best thing, but at least i can get something done with it.

Thanks for the tips Pro. I never thought about using copper pipe. I don't have any way to braze, so I would have to solder if I went that route. Isn't copper house plumbing just soldered? I think typical water pressure in a house is 40-50 psi, but I could be wrong. If it is though, then soldering should be fine for an automotive cooling system that runs at 13-16psi.

I just started on my rear radiator project last weekend. My buddy has been running one for about 3-4 yrs now. The first one he actually laid down flat on the rear of the frame. Everyone said it wouldn't work, but with a good fan (came off a Volvo turbo car) it worked. He ran his coolant through the rock rails which are just thick walled steel pipe.

The first early fans that didn't work as well:




An exo-cage was added that protected the radiator. Pics taken during build phase.

He used an inline radiator hose filler like this one on the hose coming out of the motor:

That gave him a 'high' spot to fill the system from.

That truck has been cut up, and he now runs the radiator standing up behind the cab.

Here is a link to my build on our clubs website:

I'm not sure what psi an automotive system is under, but to be honest, I would agree that carefully applied solder with the proper flux and you'd probably be fine.

That setup looks pretty slick, did he have something under the rad to keep rocks from getting kicked up into it?

automotive systems are only as high as what your rad cap is rated for (actually a tad higher, but you get the point), ever see one pop off .
