So I collect ck3 mach zs I have 17 at the moment I've totally rebuilt and restored, I ride my atv in an area that has roads paved and clean open to atvs, I would not ride my sled in the gravel and dirt, I want to add allot of bogie wheels and put on an old track and figure out a way to run two wheels per ski, the old style sleds need support where running one wheel without skis wouldn't work well, there is a cross over hose at the rear of the exchangers just before the flap, if I taped into these and ran two lines to the front bumper to a atv radiator do you guys think that would cool it?again this plan is for on road use only and obviously have it registered and insured and it is legal I looked into it, I want to only put a few Mike's on on the roads when I bring my wheelers riding, any ideas are much appreciated!

This place is dead now days.

I think you may be onto something with the extended cooler lines and some sort of air to water heat exchanger. It's certainly going to be a trial and error thing. A temp gauge will be a must. Ambient air temps will also have a great effect on how your cooling system operates as well.

Give it a whirl. You have the resources. Let us know how you make out.

Thanks for the reply, I'm going to give a try I am not sure I understand coolant systems well when it come to the hieght, does the radiator hight have to be higher that the engine?

With battery rig up some kind of radiator fan if that was not already in your plans.
I just bought this radiator, I'm thinking about tapping the crossover hose in the back of the exchangers, and mounting the radiator to the rear bumper and running a battery in the trunk hooked to the fan to run full time, obviously it will not stay charged long but I only want to rip up and own a road a few times, any other mounting ideas? And what should I do for wheels up front? Wish more people could reply because I have the skills to do it and yet the easiest ideas I overlook lol!

Fan cooled is the way to go. I had front wheels on a indy 488 and used to give rides at summer partys all the time.Jet it for the temp and good to go. I rode it in a parade one day too. That was hell on the hifax, skid, and track though.
