We are going to get a single core radiator for next year. We ran the 19x22 double core, Do you think that is too small for a single core or should I go a little bigger.
I think the next size is 19x27 or something.
We run a 400 block with alky.
Thanks

When we were on alky we ran the 19x22 single and never had problems. Actually had to run a tstat to get it warmed up.

We currently run a 360 on Alcohol, with a 26" single core radiator. We also have ran the 22" single and both cooled the motor just fine. Even with the little 22" rad. we still have to run a thermostat in the spring and fall shows, to get the motor to heat up.

If your Alcohol setup is done right and adjusted close, cooling shouldn't be a problem.

Have fun.

Whats the water capacity diff, between a single core and a double core?

Whats the empty wt diff between the two?

I was running a 31 by 19 and way cool, so I bought a 26 by 19. They both weighed the same empty exactly. The 26 only held about a half gallon less water. So the wt diff was a measly 3.5 lbs or so.

I am wondering if the single core radiators are even worth you considering? I would bet they only hold a gallon less or so max, maybe your saving 10 lbs??
