|Our standard radiator is a 5-core with a 18" @ 2800 cfm cooling fan. This includes a large shroud to increase the air flow through the radiator. The radiator is also mounted vertically rather than (like the original) mounted on an angle. When mounted on an angle, the volume of air passing through is greatly reduced. It is a closed system using a 15 lb. rad cap.|
|Our cooling system incorporates a continuous air bleed system designed to overcome air being trapped in the cooling system. Our air bleed system runs from the top to the thermostat housing, tea's off on the drivers side of the chrome expansion tank and carries on to the top left of the radiator.|
|We also supply you a custom make chrome plated brass expansion tank. The radiator itself has tanks built in, but it is lower than the top of the engine. The expansion tank is part of the air bleed system and also where you fill the cooling system. West Coast is proud of making a necessary part very attractive.
We also have an optional 7-core radiator that is recommended for engines over 425 hp. The entire cooling system holds 6 1/2 gallons of coolant. Even a 4- core radiator will still cool high hp engines if you keep moving. The main problem is getting caught in stop/ start traffic. West Coast felt is was necessary to provide you with a cooling system that could overcome overheating problems.
Where does the air go once it passes through the front grill?
The route that air is supposed to take is through the radiator, over & around the motor and out through the tunnel and under the car. That is why West Coast feels it is very important to insulate the firewall & tunnel to minimize heat in the cockpit. The tunnel / firewall on all West Coast cars is double wall construction 1" thick. How do we do that? We use 1" insulation in between sheet metal on both sides of the steel structure that forms the tunnel / firewall.
