2.8 uprated aluminium radiator

Postby sheff » Mon Feb 26, 2018 9:47 pm

Basically its this one which I bought off eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CAPRI-2-8-2-9-COLOGNE-ENGINE-70MM-ALUMINIUM-UPRATED-RADIATOR-UK-MADE/161790693842?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

I decided that I prefered the look of the standard radiator as my car is fairly original. Got my original rad recored and this one is kicking around surplus to requirements.

It cost me over £200 pounds and has hardly seen any action. I'll post some photo's when I get a chance.

Would like to see £150 back on it!

Let me know if there's any interest out there, otherwise I'll chuck it on eBay to see if there's any takers.

This is what it looks like fitted to the car

As this is a wide radiator there was not enough room to fit the viscous fan. This is the setup I used electric fan mounted in front of the rad using a temp stat I had fitted to the rad.
