BeCool Aluminum Radiator
I just installed my BeCool aluminum radiator with a new Flex-A-Lite electric fan. The Flex-A-Lite number FLE-180. It has its own shroud and the fan it replaced does not. The fan I took off is rated at 3985cfm, but the fan I replaced it with feels like it's puting out more cfm. I assume it's because of the shroud. Let me tell you there's nothing more pretty than an aluminum radiator gleaming through the grille. I just hope it's as or more efficiant than the OEM 3 core I took off. Also, I only could install three of the four mounting bolts in the radiator. Do you think I will have a problem with only three? The radiator felt pretty secure with three. I could have put the fourth in, but that would have meant drilling a new hole in my radiator support. The only thing left is to get a new overflow bottle to replace the ugly a&& plastic one and a new shiny cap. Can the overflow be mounted anywhere? Does it matter how long the hose is that connects the radiator and the overflow? Thanks in advance.
