I will try to make a little brass fitting for the barb I have. Thats a good idea if I can get it to stick. Im thinking I should have bought barbs with threads on them. this is not a problem though they were cheep and i can use them anywere in the loop.

Your right about the old car rad. I think I could just get my pops to grab me a new one from his wholesale supplyer...dont most car repair shops have those? lol
You know what might be easier and would help to cause turbulence over your core to is find some 14-16 gauge solid core copper wire and strip it down, then drill some little holes across the bottom of you inlet barb, just some little X's, have them vis a versed from each other..Maybe 3 or 4 sets of them a stacked little bit apart form each other, run the wire through and just leave a little 1/4" or so on each side, then bend those over so they will stay in your jet barb tight....That will only help if your barb is centered over the core and fairly close to it....You'll just have to play around with it till you find a config that will work....

See if he can get a 1975 Pontiac Bonnivlle with out AC heater core, if he can get one with 5/8" barbs jump on it, you can stretch 1/2" ID tubing over those with a little bit of cussing.....Really any core close to 10"x5" and a couple of inches thick will work...That way it will fit 2-120x38mm fans on it...A 1986 Chevette core isn't bad either, its just a single 120 size though...

Here is a old list of cores and sizes....Find The Perfect Heatercore

yeah that wire idea will work ok I bet...and yeah the barb will be directly over the core.

Thats right I forgot about the blower....Yeah you wont need fans.......Just a good sized core for it...I wouldn't go to wild on it with out a good pump, you'll just loose a lot of water velocity through it if its to big...Velocity/head/energy...Thats what you have to keep in mind with WC'ing flow....The higher you can keep velocity/head/energy through you loop the better you can pick up heat in your blocks and scrub it off in the rad though turbulence, in general any velocity/head/energy that is lost not scrubbing off heat or picking it up is a waste....Some rads are more restrictive because they try to have more of a internal surface area for the water to make contact with for better cooling, some rads depend on high flow to scrub off heat...

Yeah basically.....I'm not making any promises but I think I saw that Little Giant pond pump out in my shed not long ago...If I can find it you can have it..I used it on a set-up like your making a long time ago...So if I can find it and it works, its yours...

Don't get to excited, I still need to find it and make sure its working...I'm pretty sure I saw it awhile back, it still had a piece of tubing on one barb...

Ahhh...the aluminum and my eyes...must....get....copper.....

Looks like a fun project, make sure you solder it good and do a little pump pressure test if you want to check before hand..
