    Rover V8

    Well I recently shipped my Series IIA V8 over from the UK. The vehicle has been neglected and needs a restoration so over the coming months that will be keeping me busy. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions with regard cooling. Currently it has a standard Series 2/3 radiator and it struggled in the UK to keep it cool so with the Australian climate I probably won't be able to get off the driveway before it over-heats!

    I have been looking at the alloy radiators available on EBay - for around $250 it seems you can get something. Just wondered if anyone has already done this and knows the perfect combination that will fit? The front radiator panel has been hacked around previously so I do not mind if it requires additional cutting (as long as it looks standard from the outside).

    Thanks

    Try Fenix in NZ. I got an all alloy one from them for my RRC which seems to be doing the job.

    Have a look at this site, They have radiators in all shapes and sizes and mounting brackets to suit most applications. Radiators to cool engines up to 700 hp big blocks.

    Another option would be PWR Performance Products

    Radiators | PWR Performance Products

    Any radiator company that specialises in custom hotrods etc should be able to make a radiator up for you.
