  1. Picked up a Koyo aluminum radiator for my S30. Got down to installation and ran into a problem - the fan makes contact with the passenger side of the radiator (the cooling tank portion of the rad - see attached picture). After unleashing a few f-bombs, got down to trying to figure this out. Upon closer inspection it looks like the PO had installed a 8 fin fan from a 260z and it looks like the clearance between the fan and radiator are impacted by this (I hope - it appears the 260z fan extends forward further than the stock 240z fan). I've gone ahead and ordered a new fan in hopes that this solves my problem however, unless I'm missing something it looks like Koyo has made a poor design choice here .. why would they not design to have the fan fully behind the cooling fins vs. a portion over the side cooling tank. Are there any S30 owners who have installed the Koyo and run into something similar? I'd like to rule out any other possibilities I'm missing. If the correct stock fan gives me some additional clearance it still looks like I'll have minimal room between the fan and radiator (<1/2"). Pictures attached. New fan arrives Tuesday so hopefully this works and I'll have time during the week to install. PS. How do you get a profile pic up on this site? (does it really have to be a public picture from a website? -TD
  2. I've noticed that many of you have stated that an all aluminum radiator needs to be isolated from the radiator support to prevent galvanic corrosion. I've purchased a direct fit aluminum radiator (similar to what MSA sells), and I would like to see how some of you have mounted your radiators so that it's not grounded directly to the radiator support. I've seen mention of plastic sleeves and rubber and I would also be interested in knowing where these can be purchased. Thank you,
