Big Block Radiator.... Diamondbacks

Post by rubfub »

Anyone have a cross reference part number for the AFCO Large radiator that Diamondback sells? Mine's apparently shot. Don't want to reinvent the wheel or replumb, would be nice to find it closer. THX!

Unless something has changed that I don't know about you can't buy that exact radiator from anyone but Diamondback. It is specifically made for Diamondback. I have a friend that is a distributor for AFCO and about 2 years ago he called to order me one and they told him sorry it can only be bought from Diamondback Airboats. I run the same radiator as you. Panther Airboats sells one pretty close to the same. I haven't run one but someone I know did and 5 of them cracked at the tank on him in a very short time. He changed to the one from Diamondback and he hasn't had a problem since (knock on wood) 8)

Thank you much! Mine's not real old, figured I'd ask. 550 scoots is expensive, but the shipping makes it over $650. Seems steep, but maybe better than re working the rigging.

I would be willing to bet Cary Eide can make you a custom radiator to fitand less expensive.
