Walloth Nesch lower radiator hose for A/C


Recommended Posts

I went to the W&N high flow radiator and had the lower fitting changed to angle up at ~60 degrees.  It's more than 45.  I tried it without out the fitting change, and the engine moved enough that the compressor pulley started to rub on the hose.   See picture of mine from the top down without the hose installed.   So far no problems.  By the way, this the absolute best radiator for hot climates.  The two row core has somewhat wider tubes and flows better than any other stock size option I tried.  Event tried a mini 3 row core but flow was not as good.

The 60 degree outlet looks like a good solution.
In revisiting my fitment, my issues are related to the angle of the engine and the fans proximity to the lower radiator flange.
The center of the fan shows plenty of clearance, so now it is a matter of changing the angle of the drivetrain to allow for the 5-speed XMSN, Guibo alignment,and to keep the lower part of the fan away from the radiator.

And re-align the diff so the pinion is the same angle as the engine/trans shaft centerline.  Look up what a double u-joint shaft requires for alignment.(double Cardan shaft in Wikipedia) unluss you don't mind driveshaft rumble.

I raised the rear of the 5 spd XMSN and shoved the rear of the XMSN as far to the left (drivers side) as I could. Realigned the guibo and flanges.
The fan is still pretty close to the radiator on the right (passenger side.
