I have three cars with Walker radiators one is 35 years old. If the original V8 radiator in my '55 needed to be replaced it too would get a Walker three row. I personally only run brass/copper radiators in my builds. High quality and worth the expense.

2X

I also run a Walker (Z-Series) copper brass radiator. They have more tubes (every 1/4" and 12 fins per inch) than any other brand and copper transfers (conducts) heat better than aluminum.

Have to wonder why the OP has not replied to his thread yet.

He was on the site Yesterday @ 11:52 AM

Just like the guy that was looking for the 55 r/rear quarter section around the tail light. I emailed him multiple pictures as well as posted a couple in his original thread. He has been on since and I have not heard anything from him. There is another member that has inquired and he may just end up with that piece.

Then there was the "girl" in Bend Oregon that had the question about the Vette motor fiasco, then never came back also.

Sorry on the slow response.

My top tank measures 3" with the lip 3 3/8"
My bottom tank measures 2 3/4" with the lip 3"

The overall diameter of my fan is approx. 17"

The distance from my fan to the radiator core is approx. 3/4"

Sounds rather thick

Can you measure the core itself?
