MINI & MOKE '3 CORE' RADIATOR (PRE 76)
ARP2000- MINI & MOKE '3 CORE' RADIATOR (PRE 76)
This suits all 998-1100cc motors, anything over 1275 we would recommend a 2 or 4 core (requires a 508-13 cap)
Standard 3 offset tube Core Radiator.
We sell hundreds of the super 2-core and 4-core radiators, but that may be more cooling power than you need. If you have a standard Mini and live in a cool climate this well made 3-core type with 9 core fins/gills per inch may be more than adequate and definitely better than your old rusted or clogged one.
It is always favourite to fit an electric fan to help cooling in our changing environment of weather and traffic queues rather than fit a radiator that will over ccol.. From 1980 all factory fitted radiators were to the old Cooper S spec of 3 rows of cores and 16 gills per inch to cope with the hotter running engines but radiator designs have changed a lot. However the basic problem is the lack of water capacity and all the late minis have 5/8" bore heater hoses as opposed to the old 1/2" bore which helps. Now different core designs and fins as on this radiator have helped to cool better than the old original designs.
Not suitable for 1976 Australian built Minis, where the outlet was at the rear of the radiator.
We have stocked this radiator for 10-15 years and it has proven extra reliable.
If you have the radiator out it makes sence to change the water pump and new fan belt of course.
