Re: Which aluminum 3 core radiator should I go with?

Sorry, I'm not answering your question exactly, but I got an aluminum rad from www.alumrad.com (McCulloch radiators) for my 96 XJ. It's a very large single tube and very well priced. It worked fantastic, as I was getting over a long stint of sever overheating problems using a new 3-row copper rad and all the other usual stuff. You might want to give him a call, they know their stuff.

Call Dirk at DPG Offroad and order a CSF 3 core. You will be glad you did. Dirk is a great guy to deal with and I love my CSF 3 core.

CSF 3 core is not aluminum unless mine is aluminum and I didn't know it but it sure looks like copper to me. But it works great nonetheless and I got it from DPG Offroad as noted above.

You are correct, it is copper and brass, not aluminum. as far as i know nobody makes a 3 core all aluminum.

It's about time someone started a radiator comparison thread. There's no useful cooling system info anywhere around here.
