V8 coolant pipes
Posted by: Dave Decker ()

Am starting to fab my coolant pipes for my Crown car. Anyone have sketches or dimensions of the original Crown pipes? I have some 1-1 half copper pipe and 45 degree couplings that I could use. They would have to be bent slightly right at the point where they start heading towards the engine. How well do you think the copper would bend? TIA. Cheers, Dave

I guess soft bendable copper might bend a bit ?

Isn't there diagrams in the crown book? Over the v8 registry web site

Dave

I had mine bent at a muffler shop, I gave them the old ones and they fabbed new ones.

I then coated them internally with POR-15, all is good.

Thanks Bob. My muffler guy was impressed with the crown drawing. I had one made 1 and a half OD and one 1 and 3 quarters to match the rad and engine outlets
