Thanks for the compliment....it was ALOT of work to get it put together
More pictures here:
Its a double core, all aluminum radiator that both Chris Miller and I
sourced from Javad Shadzi for about $400- its made by Ron Davis Racing.
What it is not is a drop in solution...
The radiator comes without any mounting flanges - which means you need to
Chris and I took too different approaches - on his, we alumawelded and
epoxied side an lower mounts in the stock location, and used captive nuts
for the shrouds.
I took an approach similar to Javad's - I had 4 "C" clips made from SS -
one for the passenger mount, one to support the upper condensor mount near
the engine, and two modified lower ones that mimic the clips on the stock
radiator that hold the lower part of the condensor, The lower part of the
radiator is held by two Ford Bronco radiator mounts on a piece of box
section aluminum, and the modified CQ radiator shroud is held in place by
10mm bolts and the stock radiator captive nuts - (I carefully drilled holes
into the radiator side supports for the nuts. Even then I had to take a
heat gun to the shroud to get it to fit around the radiator outlet and sender.
If I looked at the time it spent, the help that I needed, I probably did
not save much over the cost of the approximate $800 USD that the Dialynx
UrQ radiator costs...
the dialynx is a drop-in - Jimmy Pribble is running one.
Mike Sylvester is also putting one into his UrQ
But then I'm also the only one that I know of who is trying to maintain the
