    That is not a bad price for an aluminum radiator... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Two row? No thanks. I'll take my $120 3 core from Autozone, thank you very much. I don't care what it's made from.

    $159 + $20 shipping. You can get a 4 core for that.

    Two 1" tubes is supposed to be the way to go....It wouldn't look that nice after just 1 winter here though /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I think you would definately have to change the fluid on a regular basis....

    I believe in keeping things simple too, but you seem to be dead set on new ideas....

    The two 1" diameter tubes allows more of the tube to come in contact with the fins. The more surface area in contact, the more heat is drawn out of the coolant. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Boy Tim, I thought you knew everything? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    Oh that's right, you wait for someone to provide an answer and then you go back and edit your post. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif clicky

    I don't know what you're referring to. I don't know why you'd make such a comment anyway. I've read Wes's post on wheelbearings/spindles/axleshaft lengths so many times I almost can remember it by heart, except the lengths of the axleshafts which I don't find to be important, only that they're different lengths.

    In the future, just for you, I'll go ahead and leave the edit timestamp at the bottom of a post if I mess with it. Usually I type the word EDIT and then a colon if I'm editing the post after the fact. I'm sure you can do a search on my username and find that I've done this a number of times.

    I don't have any need to try to make anyone think I know everything. I know enough to build my rig and I'm glad it has worked out so well. If I knew everything, I certainly wouldn't spend near as much time as I do on CK5 asking questions.

    I answer other people's questions if I know the answer simply because I'd want my own answered and I do it as a matter of common courtesy.

    Must have missed the two 1" tubes comment in the Ebay ad though. Oh well...my mistake. Either way I don't care which radiator you choose. I'm so happy that mine worked out so well for $120. Even if that aluminum one would have been a better choice, I saved some cash, which is good because I can use it for something I'd like to have more (like a few aux. lights for the rear, a new front bumper, winch, 1 ton steering parts, etc that I've got planned here shortly)
