Question about W&N Radiator


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

W&N have the upgraded radiator on special. However, it states US spec only. Is this something that needs an adapter for euro spec, or is there an entirely different model?

I have a '74 Euro spec touring.

 

Many thanks.

Perhaps. You must read the entire qualifying phrase:

 

for use in US spec. model only with lower water hose 11531266452- use with 360 mm fan blade only
 

All U.S. models were converted to an “A/C type” radiator ca. 1972 (or earlier?). The “A/C type” radiator moved the lower hose outlet outboard and angled it upward, in order to avoid conflict with A/C compressors. The earlier style radiator on U.S. models had the inboard, straight-out lower hose outlet. Lower water hose 11531266452 should be the hose for the earlier style radiator, which the standard W&N HD radiator replaces perfectly. It appears that most Euro-spec ‘02’s may not have received the A/C radiator that became standard in U.S.-spec models early on.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Yes, this is what I was gathering (though without all the great historical insight!) Thanks.
