    I'm not sure you will have enough space to reverse them. The front under tray slopes down from the front to the back, if you tried to reverse the rad slope the angle would be almost horizontal given the space confines. I guess it will all become clear when you offer it up.

    Or horizontal above the wheel arch with louvers in the top of the wing/body in front of the screen is about the only option not thought of, but it's a daft one anyway.

    I was thinking of the large oil cooler I have under the front of the rear deck and all that space above the gearbox and under where most of you have the fuel tank. a largish radiator with two fans, one constant and one thermo switched, would work well.

    Decisions, decisions, glad I have air/oil cooled.

    I rate; Effective/ease of install.
    A, 80%/50%
    B, 50%/30%
    C, 20%/10%
    D, 80%/60%
    E, 80%/80%
    F, 30%/70%

    IMHO

    this is the option i`m going for. nice large space where most nova`s have the fuel tank. a few more mod`s to inside of body for maximum air flow. the only problem doing it this way is that most of hot air from the rad will pass out over the top of the engine bay which is where, at the moment, my air intake for the carb sits. this may have an affect on the carb tuning. if it does i`ll just re route the air intake.

    There is much good info on here, and I am obviously grateful, it does make sense I think for a desperate folder for the watercooled engines.

    When it comes to water cooled issues most of us are "desperate" for solutions so it makes sense

    Seriously though we have sort of hijacked your build thread, Maybe Dan or Alax can move these bits of the thread to a new "Radiator" thread ?
