    In response to Coaldalecar

The 51 Bus Coupe had a mildly built 350 with a short water pump, and a factory 4 blade fan from my stash of parts (most likely a V-8 Tri-Five). We also installed a Champion aluminum radiator in the stock location, with roughly 1-1/2" clearance between the radiator and fan. NEVER any signs of getting hot, no boil overs, no dieseling on shut down, nothing. There were very few parts actually purchased for the build of the entire car; almost everything I had on hand. We would have used the stock radiator, and I'm sure it would have been fine, but the nephew got into buying the "shiny stuff", such as the radiator, valve covers, air cleaner, and polished alternator.
