Years ago I did.  I put in a 4 row, I think that it was good for 800HP.  No problems whatsoever.  It needed a little bit of modification to mount.  I also put in a small  overflow tank.  Make sure you have the correct psi rad cap for your motor.  The older engines 15 psi is too much.

Hi Dave,

I was certain it was you that had installed one. This is good subject matter for the owners following N.T. My neighbour purchased a Narrow Gauge recently, powered by a 250 Chevy six. Some rad issues in the beginning. I'll let him know that you posted some solid info. Thanks
