Radiator recomendations

Post by Langan Repair » Oct 1st, 2018 6:30 pm

I am working on a 1969 Corvette for my step father
The car was built back in the 90's as a show car and the fan shroud and fan were replaced with a old style electric fan

Not a lot of focus was put on drivability and I am trying to fix that

It is a non air roadster with a 350 and 4 speed and he has a lot of trouble with this car overheating and I am looking to solve this

My question is what would be the best combination of radiator and fan to install to get the best cooling so that he ends up with something that he can get in and drive anywhere

It currently has the small radiator 18x16 core with the remote fill tanks

Is this radiator sufficient for the small block when used with a proper fan shroud and mechanical fan.

Should I use a clutch fan? Would I be better off going to the larger radiator 26x17

I appreciate any help that anyone can provide like I said I am just trying to make this a nice reliable driver for him

Thanks for your help
