Van,

The radiator is mounted in the rear. It is just inside the engine door. This allows the fan to drive directly off the engine like a truck. The fan blows air through the radiator and exhausts out of the engine door, which has an open grill.

Van,

Do you have that kind of room behind the engine on your 15? I know I don't on my 20. The engine is way farther back on the 20 than on the 10. The radiator on the 20 swings out, which I like. But Norris told me that I needed to get rid of the NJT radiator and put in a regular Eagle radiator. I don't remember why he said I should do it, but I hope I can engineer it so the regular Eagle radiator can still be used on the swing. One thing I want to accomplish is getting rid of that big radiator support than hangs down below the stainless on that side.

NJTs are not your average Eagles. They have a lot of differences.
