car radiator / thermo fan as fan/radiator ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
im thinking of modding an old car radiator i have in my garage as my wc setup rad. It measures a mere 420x545x25 so i think ill have to build a rad box for it , but do you guys think it will be able to cool down my rig ( sign ) ?
It look like this.

Also do you guys think the Laing D5 will be enough to pump water from it and to the system ? Or should i buy a fish tank pump ?

I would assume the barbs are for the transmisson cooler.

You might need two pumps. Possibly. It is unsure. But you have to know that the amount of flow through the car radiator is a lot more than the pumps we have. So I think two would work. But one might not.

those are transmission oil coolers. TOC lines. Im not sure if you want to use such a HUGE radiator, just seems like its over doing it. but, thats my 2cents. oh and on the TOC lines, they don't need to be plugged up, they will not leak, for they are a separate system inside the plastic tanks.

Maybe ill just put a stop plug in there
about the rad , as i got it for free and haven't used it ( it was a surprise gift ) , it still looks like new. I want to use it instead of having to pay ~ $300 for the same rad

Hey, for you or anyone else, I can get car/truck radiators for cheap, since I get them at cost world wide. PM me if you need one, for your car, truck, or PC.

And that radiator would be like $80 new if you wanted.
