Recoring a ThermoChill Radiator - Core built by me
I just took apart my ThermoChill PA120.3 (25mm) Thinking of recoring it with a much better core, but also would like the input as an idea for my next custom radiator. The one I built right now has four rows, and the core is "thicker" than a TFC Monsta. Three Rows would still be thick, but seems like a nice medium?

Don't think there will be too much benefit from it more than likely.

ah lowfat it would be more heavy on the scale

If thickness doesn't matter, why don't we use single row radiators for everything? Not trying to sound like a dick, but why don't we use single route in other applications? Vehicles, rigs, skids, air conditioners, etc

I went in to my bosses rad shop today and put together a Petbuilt PC-9000 radiator. After that, I played with the "small" rads. My ThermoChill PA1203 (25mm)

ThermoChill must have "glued" this rubber "U-Channel/ gasket" think to the header of the core. This is where the "separator" piece of brass goes, to create the "U-Flow" design.


Inside the top tank. The piece of copper soldered on here. The overall soldering job here was kind of messy, but whatever. Oh, and here is where all that flux comes from!



I guess they number all of them:


Don't think I left it that dirty!

Stuck with two rows of tubes. I should be done tomorrow or Monday - or Saturday if I feel like working on it on the weekend :p

Should have my core done tomorrow... or Monday. Depends how much free time I have tomorrow.

New core for my ThermoChill PA120.3

your loosing cap, with staggard tubes better use a turbine fan for to flow air

Unfortunate cell phone shots right now :( Still need to do a little more solder work, and buffing.
