It's a little more bulky to do it with a phone versus computer. Unfortunately this forum software isn't as mobile friendly as it could be. If I have time I will update the how to post a photo thread later tonight with cell phone specific instructions.

Hi everyone. I have a couple of questions about the new aluminum radiator i purchased for my car. To start my stock radiator doesnt leak or anything like that but when its extreamly hot in the summer time my temp gage rides a little on the high side. I bought a 3 row aluminum radiator a couple weeks ago. It came with 2 12inch electric fans. I havent started the install yet but i was wondering if i could use the stock fan with the aluminum radiator? I would like to use the electric fans but i was wondering if it would be ok to use the stack fan for now. I dont have any performance upgrades on my engine yet. That is a little later down the road. The engine is a 351c with 2v heads. Any input would be appreciated thanks in advance.

You'll be fine with that 3 core AL radiator on a stock 351C 2V and the factory fan. I bet she'll run at the bottom of the temp. range.

Keep the the electric fans just in-case you want to do some city grid-lock idling!

If you are not able to view the video above on your phone, then you can try to click the link below, it might work on your mobile phone.
Notice: The link below is for mobile phone users only, people that are using a computer or other device instead of a mobile phone probably should not click the link below, because it might only work on a mobile phone.
