C-ARA5000

RADIATOR 2-CORE ALUMINIUM - SIDE FITTING TYPE

Lightweight aluminium type high efficiency radiator designed exclusively by Mini Spares for fitment,rigidity and appearance. Over 500 sold to June 2014.

Many off the shelf types available in the market place are not so robust or easily fitted but this is purpose built and designed. The drain hole plug is fitted at an angle so it can take a sender unit as required for later cars 1990 on.(See fitment below).

Outlet pipe at top comes out facing backwards. Lower outlet set at correct angle suitable for "S" variants plus all standard minis. Uses METRIC cowling bolts. Bolt holes may need to be adjusted on later one piece cowlings and modified on early 2 piece cowlings.

The top tank is 10mm wider on other models available and will foul on many radiator inner wing cowlings and will require modifications-



C-ARA5000 ALLOY RADIATOR FITMENT

The New rad from 2013 is now Made specifically by us to fit any year mini. Earlier competitors models used a Header tank 10mm wider, biased towards the inner wing which would foul 1990-2000 cars where the engine was 1/2" further forward.

Fitted with a drain plug which is the same size as our screw in type sender unit C-ARA4445-The sender unit will need purchasing if required.



CHECK BEFORE FITTING

Take the cowling from the engine and make sure it fits the radiator easily and file out mounting bolt holes if necessary, which makes life easier when fitting in the car. Make sure you fit short metric cowling to radiator bolts.

Place cowling in position loosely but do not attach until the radiator has been dropped in place and checked for fitment.(then fit to cowl). Ensure the front of the radiator where the top hose fits clears the lip of the wing to avoid damage.

You may have to cut the tab from the boomerang shaped upper radiator bracket that sits against the thermostat housing, to allow movement and modification to squeeze the top tank in .

Make sure the fan clears cowling all round.

The variants that make this radiator difficult to fit on post 1990 cars is that the engine is further forward and the subframe mountings might have wrong alignment.

The engine mountings available also play a critical part in alignment as well as any previous accident damage repairs.



Some minor modifications maybe required on cars with air con fitted (overflow tube needs adjusting slightly depending on location of AC lines).
