The new radiator installation looks great Eliseo! I like those blue hoses too. Let us know how cool she runs now.

I was wondering about the old radiator. Was that a stock radiator for a Giulietta? I ask because of the customized top radiator hose going across like that. I've never seen that set up before.

Original Radiatror Mods

Hi Kai,

The "original" radiator did have some modifications:
-No filler neck, it has a remote unit.
-The inlet I believe is the same, it is a 101, not a 750 and the configuration changed...I think so.

I hope I can test it soon, I was told my local track has a race this weekend so it will have to wait till next one……DARN!!!!

Talking The Testing!

Hi all,

I finally got a chance to go test the new radiator!

It was an open test day at our local track and there were also some bikes out there so we had ½ hr. intervals.

I was the first one out on a very dirty and muddy track. I took it very easy and wanted to make sure we did not have any leaks. Came in and verified all to be fine.

Second time out I started to go faster (to my standards) and the water temp did not even go over 180°! Oil temp was around 200°.

Third time out I did go flat out and only managed to get the water temp to 190°!!! Now I will have to cover it a bit to get in the 200° range.

I am very happy with the final outcome, the product I got from Ron Davis Radiators was good and the temps came down to what I was told they would do.

Happy racing to all………..

Regards,

Eliseo Carrillo
