I have this 22-23 hp diesel that I'm dropping in a garden tractor. It fits very well into my frame. My question is on radiators. I am going to be using this tractor to plow in spring & fall only. I have limited space like most of you know, but I want something that will cool this motor. Please let me know what your using for radiators and electric fans. My current space availability id like to stay in is 10"x18" overall

The original radiator was probably the minimum size that you need. What tractor are you going to put it in? Good Luck, Rick

A new holland. But not necessarily have seen guys use Honda radiators or 4 wheeler radiators in customs. Also depends on usage. Plowing in the spring or fall should be a little cooler than mowing in the heat of summer(motor came off golf course mower) with less debris getting in the fins

When considering radiator size the number of cores needs to be considered also. Add a core and the size can be reduced. Don

I used a 2 core Honda Civic/Del Sol radiator with my Kubota D1005 with engine driven fan and it never gets hot, but it measures 14W x 18" tall.

I have one from a honda del sol/civic from CR racing on ebay. Cheap and easy to install and lightweight as well. I have a 14 inch fan on mine currently but our applications are different  :thumbs:

That's the one I was thinking of Brad. But at 14 wide, you would almost need a shoehorn to slip it in the front. About 12" wide would be much easier.

Here's what should work for you.  The last one I bought but haven't used yet is a radiator for a Mini-Cooper.  It's only 10 1/4" wide x 15 1/4" tall and 2" thick.  You can find them on Ebay in 2 core and 3 core versions.  I think even the 2 core would do if using an electric fan as they really move the air.  I put a 190* thermostat inline to operate my fans and they do cycle off a lot, so even the smaller 2 core oughta keep the engine heat at bay, but the fan may cycle on longer.  There are differences between companies as to the drain plug configuration, so be aware when looking to buy.
