    So, I want to move the radiator in my truggy behind the driver/passenger area. Since I will probably not be running a hood or fenders, the radiator is going be restricting my view now.
    1. Do I need to get a higher flowing water pump or will the stock one do?
    2. How high can I mount the radiator before I start having problems?


    Thanks.

    As for how high you can move it I'm not entirely sure. You can go up a bit with the stock pump, provided your stock pump is in good working order. You can get one of those plates that attaches to the impeller in the pump to increase flow. That will help.

    Another tip for you, If you switch to a Ford radiator your inputs and outputs on the rad will be on the correct side once its turned around behind the motor.
