Radiator with SBC 283
I'm building a '36 Hudson Terraplane 2-Door Sedan. '59 Chevy 283 with 700R4 trans. Not a lot of room for a radiator but by sheer accident I found that the radiator from a '99 Dodge Stratus with the 2.5 V6 is the exact size.
Problems: I have to stand it on end and the inlet and outlet tubes are both on the top (originally both are on the driver's side when the radiator is mounted normally). I have to get an in-hose filler & cap.
Is having the inlet and outlet tubes both on the top instead of one on top and one on the bottom going to be a problem? I can use copper tubing or galvanized pipe to go down the passenger side to the water pump hose. Will this radiator be large enough. It also has the a/c condensor and trans cooler in front of the radiator with dual electric fans to pull air through the radiator.
