Hose and what I did

April 17 2017, 6:33 AM 

Denis,
This is what I did on my Fairlane. I don't know if your Howe radiator is the same as my radiator I got 11 years ago? This is a cut&paste note I have on file.

I used a Howe Racing aluminum radiator by Crites restorationhttp://www.critesrestoration.com/fairlane.htm

I used Spal dual fanshttp://www.spalusa.com/ part number 30102130 and their relay/thermostat controls at http://www.spalusa.com/fans/automated/tech_sheets/FRH-185FH-195FH.pdf Quantity of 2, 1 for each fan motor. I had to upgrade to a 130 Amp one wire alternator to accomodate the fan amp draw.

I used some old NOS hoses I had lying around to hook up the radiator and water connections.
Upper Hose: D1HZ-8260-A the Motorcraft equivalent is KM-391. Modification: 1" trimmed off both sides.
Lower Hose: C4SZ-8286-A the Motorcraft equivalent is KM-128. Modification: 3/4" trimmed off rad. side.

Doug, that is the same set up I have and the only difference since changing the engine is the water pump. I'll take my old hose to the parts store today to see what we can match up. Bobby I don't know if there are differences between Dove and Edelbrock. Did ever race at Fayetteville NC drag strip in the mid 60's. Thank you both for responding. Denis

Doug the neck on the water pump is 2" but the problem is the ridge is 2 3/8" and I can't get the hose on it. I read on here where someone ground the ridge off to get the hose on. My old hose is 2" at the pump and 1 3/4" at the rad. so I will probably get the grinder out. Have a great time at the Reunion. Thank you Denis
