be cool radiator

Just got done installing a new aluminum radiator in my 68 350. The radiator was from be-cool as was relatively easy to install. Only problem was when I tried to reinstall the radiator shroud. My searching the forum it seems like others have had this same proble. I do not plan on installing an electric fan. Anyone found a solution to this problem? Does Be-cool sell a shroud that will fit their radiators?

Re: be cool radiator

I forgot to mention my problem is that he shroud is too short for the radiaor by about an 1 to 1.5 inches. The car is a non AC car and I think I remember reading that the original radiators were 21". The AC cars had a longer radiaotr. Has anyone tried using a shroud from the AC cars on a be-cool radiator?

Re: be cool radiator

I have a 69, not positive on a 68, but I assume you need something to mount the lower shroud clips to. I don't have a Be-Cool, but you might take a look at these. I used them with a Summit radiator on my 69, and they work well. They might be worth a look for your Be-Cool rad. They attach at the lower radiator to core support bolt holes. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-380660/

Re: be cool radiator

The main problem is that the original shroud is too short for the new radiator. If I were to mount it there would be at least an inch sticking out from each side.

Re: be cool radiator

I have a BeCool radiator but I run their electric fans. I have seen some chrome/polished custom shroud kits like this one. What about a BBC shroud? Aren't they bigger?

Re: be cool radiator

I think the fan hole is in the wrong place on the BB car, he needs a SB with A/C shroud.
No idea about the clips, does the Be Cool rad have something to hold the bottom edge of the shroud in place?

Re: be cool radiator

I used my stock shroud on my champion radiator,it is about 2 inches too short but cools fine.I have not been able to find anyone who makes a shroud that fits.A big block shroud will not fit either.
