Apparently the BPD mechanical clutch is the Hayden 2835, which is the Severe Duty RV fan clutch mentioned above, right?

And the performance radiator . com radiator is the 2004 FORD F-350 SUPER DUTY RADIATOR 2944?

My F350 is an early build 2004 (built june 2003).

Thanks!

My F350 is an early build 2004 (built june 2003). Yes to the performance radiator company. I did forget to mention that I had a major mishap with UPS destroying two radiators shipped from performance. DHL is the company that finally brought it to me in CA the "least" damaged

Funny we are now talking about radiators.....I just walked outside and my drain petc*ck o-ring is allowing a drip of coolant here and there.

Not to hijack the thread but does anyone know the exact size of these so I can get some BUNA orings?


Thanks!

I'll second....or are we up to thirds on the Performance Radiator. I broke the plastic piece off the stock return from the degass and felt plastic on a radiator is stupid. I needed the radiator quick so I drove a couple of hours down to NC and picked one up. From what I hear you REALLY don't want those radiators shipped too far. The guy down in NC straight said he has no idea what happens with UPS crossing the NC/VA line but the radiators take a beating. BPD packs the Performance Radiator up with great care. You pay a premium for it but it guarantees safe passage to your house.

if you order your Performance radiator from BPD you get their box with stand off foam over the Performance box

I picked mine up From BPD and wished i had unpacked it at their dumpster first

i was recycling cardboard for a few weeks worth of trash pickups lol


also what is an advantage for the 05 up guys is BPD will include the newer radiator adapters where last i heard if you select a 05 up Performance radiator you may get plastic tanks
along with the later model style radiator

Extra credit for a fumoto valve solution. That would be the perfect solution.

I selected an 04 model and swapped over my connectors to it.

My Performance Radiator is about 8 months old. I had a new EGR and oil cooler install last month. Following that my radiator drain dripped for a while. I was none too happy about it. Kept giving it some micro twists and eventually it stopped. That design is really lacking. A Fumoto fix would be most excellent.

Yikes on the shipping. Damn them at BPD. I have spent way too much... speaking of which, after this flurry of more parts, my wife came into the garage...

"Is there anything you haven't replaced yet on the truck you just bought?!?!"

I looked down at the floor, not saying a word, trying my best to look repentant.

There's no way I've spent less than 7K at this point.

BPD relocate
brand new garret turbo
riff raff intercooler boots
230A alternator and full cables kit
Billet water pump
Mechanical fan clutch
Odawg r3 manifold
ARP studs
Felpro head gaskets
Engine hoist and 6.0L head lifting bracket
Y pipes (minus the EGR port)
Coolant filtration
heater core
radiator
aluminum degas
fumoto valves
truck full of distilled water
case of final charge ELC cat ec-1 coolant
four 2.5 gallon jugs of rotella t5 5w-40
filters for oil and fuel
relocate vacuum pump
heat shielding for the wiring harness


I must be forgetting other stuff...

6 new BFG K02 tires on day one as the original worn out tires were 2003 date code...

Possibly alimony when this is over..

good work around
but it can be hit or miss if those connections will seal again and there are two O-ring inside one is all but impossible to change
as you know ford won't sell these couplers separately so aftermarket is the only way to get them

Mike there should be a performance radiator someplace near you ?

you should have made a shopping list and spent a day picking up stuff from BPD/KCTurbo and Performance LOL
