Re: Honda Civic radiator in Datsun 1000 How-To

Issue is D you need a shroud for that thermo fan (although they're available through ebay too for extra cost). And it wasn't getting hot at high RPM, it was hot at 800rpm sitting still in traffic. The temp would crawl up and the fan combined with the aging radiator was not moving enough air. Hence a newer fan with more power.

Also consider height is an issue in the 1000. My bonnet barely shut with a 120y rad. The wider A14 radiator fit fine but the one I had was in even worse shape.

Bracket example:
Open in new window

I like that any container can be an overflow bottle, lots of opportunity for something ridiculous (like a VB tinnie)
