    V-8 Serpentine with A\C

    Got a 350 all ready to go into an 87 S-10. It Has a serpentine setup from a 91 Truck. It Also has A\C. I noticed alot of the conversion truck pictures I've seen don't have A\C. I was
    Wondering if any of you have done the A\C thing. If so
    what kind of radiator and fan setup. I've heard bad things
    about the be-cool radiators but its the only one i've seen
    that doesnt involve moving the condensor. By the way the motor is a low horsepower 350 with 305 heads. About 9.8 to one and
    a comp cam that gives up at 4500. Should be around 250.

    Any help or advice is appreciated.

    The guy said he had found some custom made radiator that would fit. I have dual eletric fans too.

    I've got a 350 TPI motor in my 85 Blazer. I also have a/c in my truck, and I found that you don't have to get a custom radiator. My radiator is an aluminum deal out of the same Corvette that the motor got pulled from. If you have a little skill with a jigsaw, you can cut the radiator support to allow clearance for installing both a condensor and the stock radiator.
    Depending on how you mounted the motor, this probably won't leave much, if any, room for an engine mounted fan. Not a problem though--just wire in a couple (I have two) electric fans, and this will keep the motor running cool on all but the hottest of days (I live in Orlando, and heat isn't an issue except for when sitting in traffic with the a/c on and the temp is over 95).
