Custom Radiator; Second Revision
 
All Canadian Radiator: Second Revision

So after building my first radiator for my TJ07, I decided to take that idea, and make a good version. Specifically, in a 120.3 spec. I am basing it on the old ThermoChill radiators. I have a 19mm and 25mm coming my way. These will be stripped down for measurment purposes.

IDEAS

1) Built in Fan Shroud. I would add 5/8" overhang on one side of the radiator. This would act as a built in shroud. Example:

2) Duel G1/4 Ports on either side. This would allow the user to use the built in shroud (5/8") in either push or pull, and have fittings on either side they would choose. Like in this picture:

Current Specs
All copper and brass construction
Staggered Tube Design
Tubes are designed to add turbulance to the water
8 FPI of Copper striagt multi lovered fins
G1/4 threaded inserts
Duel-pass
Fan brackets will be made from brushed aluminum with steel threaded inserts for the fans.

Anything else worth consideration?

use blind incerts for to make idiot proof (not threaded through, no hole)

and use threaded rod to mount fan, gives option of lenght

That's what I was thinking of using. But then I would need to get specific/ exact length screws for it.

not really for stud setup once fan is on, just cut excess off an 6-32 cromed acorn nut to cap it

Or I'll just say that one should use 30mm screws for 25mm fans?
