Unless you plan on cutting out some of of the core support, the tanks and part of the core of the 31" rad will be covered up. On both V8 rangers I built I used the next size narrower summit rad, the tanks were slightly covered but none of the core was. If air can't pass over most of the radiator, a larger size could actually be worse.

Its a little pricey, but this fan is a beast. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16217/overview/ Use a Derale 2 spd controller along with it and you'll be set. Otherwise you only need two switched power sources to activate both speeds. The first activated switch ALWAYS turns on Low speed and high is activated whenever a second switch is turned on. On my friends car we used a screw in temp switch preset for 180*-ON and a derale single fan adjustable control. The adjustable control gives you the ability to use the preset switch as the high or low temp switch depending on how you set it up. The controller also has an override feed to manually turn the fan on.

Preset temp switch - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16730/overview/

Single Fan Controller - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16759/overview/ (it says single/dual fan, but the max amperage limits its use to singe with most fans)

Dual Fan Controller - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16789/overview/

Both controllers are available with push in or thread in options (different part numbers). I currently run 2 of the 16759's on my rig (dual 25A fans), but now that they have the 16789 available I will be switching to that.

Not the best photo, but you can see the issue I am referring to. I would have to check my receipts to be sure, but I believe I used this radiator http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-380425/overview/

We have a puller fan on it, so it brings air from under the rig and blows it away from the cell.

Reiko - The paint drawing is not to scale. lol

After having serious discussion about it tonight, I may try to mount it in the front still. Winter project.
It was AlumCJ having issues, but part of it was that he had using a street rod fan that did not like dust/dirt/mud, as well as not liking the angle. He talked to a guy that either worked for spal, or knew a lot about them and he gave him some info on the right fan. When he changed the fan, he also change the mount, so he never ran the good fan at the original angle.

I believe summit now has triple pass radiators in the universal Ford style.
I'm removing my core support and building one out of tube. Then I will build a fan Shroud to fit it so I am pulling air across the whole thing. The core is 27x19. Not huge but lots better than I have now.

It will for sure do the job, I have the exact same rad in my truggy and haven't had any cooling issues yet. The fans/shroud will make/break the setup though. These are the fans I went with - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16837/overview/

They fit the radiator perfectly.

I picked up a contour fan today, seems pretty nice, pita to remove from the car! Looks like it will fit my new radiator great, just have to figure out a simple way to mount it.

Started my hydro swap today, yanked out all the old, made a new tie rod, mounted the orbital, and figured out my ram mounts, just gotta make em at work next week.

My orbital is kinda close to my exhaust manifold, probably gonna put a heat shield between them. This set up will only be temporary. My frame is kinda messed up so I'm gonna rebuild it when I put the new radiator in.

Now I just need to figure out a reservoir for my Saginaw pump, lines, and which ports are which so I can start plumbing.


Gonna be ready for mustache run.

Ok, seems easy enough. I think I'm gonna have to move the lower hose hookup anyway so good time to weld the whole thing up.
