I am working on fabricating some aluminum brackets to mount a dual Spal fan on my Crites radiator (still on order) and was looking for two dimensions. How far the water inlet is from the top and from the bottom? See dimensions "A" & "B" anyone that can help, I'd appreciate it. Crites provided the other dimensions to draw it to scale but since they have none in house currently and don't have the fittings locations documented they could not help me on those two dimensions.

Thanks,

I have a Crites aluminum FE (390) radiator coming. It is different than factory. Since I don't have it yet, and I plan to install the SPAL aftermarket dual fans. I am trying to fabricate some brackets a head of time. I am looking for someone who has the Crites radiator and where the water connections are located.

Thanks,

Griffin is a junk epoxy sealed radiator besides, they appear to be going under. Filed for bankruptcy! Try getting one now. Even Summit has a 2+ month lead time. I got everything worked out on my radiator. Could not be more satisfied!

Thanks!

Northern Radiators is who supplies Crites with their radiators. The better thing about buying direct from northern is they make several different styles of radiators, and you can buy a better unit than what crites will provide, for the same price. I did this with my 63's radiator.

Nope! Howe Racing makes the custom radiators for Fairlanes, for Crites.
