Rear mounted radiator

Ok I have to bild a new radiator mount when I swap in my BBC . Does anyone have any pics or experience putting the radiator in the back of a K5. I know how to mount it, I just can't seem to figure out a good way to plumb it that far.

I was planning to use exhaust pipe, but I am unsure in routing it......outside the frame, inside the frame, through the cabin......just looking for ideas i guess.

I think his nose is too slim. If he tapers any more he would only be able to run a honda radiator...lol

my nose is slim, but the real problem is that it sits about a 1/2 inch away from the machnical fan....so when I swap in my BBC I am going to use electric fans. I am just not to keen on adding so much wieght to the front. I figure since I have to run electric fans and build a new mount anyway, why not move that wieght to the back.

I personally wouldn't have a rear mounted radiator. This past weekend at MR6 I saw 1 guy in the unlimited class hill climb. Get soaked pretty good with antifreeze when his rear mounted radiator started puking all over him. I don't think I would like that.
Just my 2 cents!!!!!!!!!!!

Has anyone found any good light wieght raditators that could be scored cheap at a junkyard. I know that caprices with LT1s have light weight Alum with Plastic tanks that cool really well but I don't think they will work with a regular flow motor. I might just look into replacing my 4 core with something lighter.

Sometime in the late 80s, early 90s they went to an Al radiator in the c/k trucks. I know my brother's 93 has one. I'm not sure on the width though.

Have you checked out the summit Al radiators? I think most of them are around 150 or 175 dollars.
