Step 8: Cooling System

Cooling System Guide

LS V8 Cars.
The cooling system consists of a few main components. The water pump on the engine, Radiator, expansion tank, over flow tank, fan, and the hoses to connect them.
You will want to leave the water pump off the engine for an easier install into the car. *****You will need to reinstall the pump after below steps before bolting in the shocks*****
Step 1: With the water pump off, remove the stock outlet tube. This can be done with hammer, chisel, and vice grips. Move it back and forth, it will come out. ****optional****Depending on if your running heat or not, you can remove the heater outlets tubes as well. The larger 3/4" port will be run to the bottom of our expansion tank.

Step 2: Take the 90 degree CNC fitting supplied with kit, and press it into place with the outlet toward the passenger side. If you do not have a press, find a local shop to do it for you. After the fitting is pressed, install the -16 thermostat housing from the CBM motorsports on to the pump. *****optional****With the heater outlets removed, you can tapp the smaller hole with a 3/8" NPT tap, and the larger hole with a 1/2" npt tapp. If you are not using a heater, plug up 3/8" Npt hole (you could also not tapp this and use a freeze plug). With the 1/2" npt hole, use an adapter fitting to a -6 or -8 90* hose to run to the bottom of the expansion tank.

Step 3: Install the pump on the engine. Install the radiator to the chassis. The Stalker radiator will have tabs on either side that correspond with mounting brackets on the frame. It is recommended to get some rubber (garage door sealer works good, or McMaster car) to put between the radiator and the lower support frame. Using a bolt on each side, drill and bolt the radiator into place. The radiator has a 1/8" NPT bleed hole in the top, put a plug in this and leave it loose for now.

Step 4: Build the hoses. Using the -16 hose and fittings, connect the upper outlet to the upper on the radiator, and lower to the lower.

Step 5: Drill and bolt the expansion tank to the upper firewall. It will fit best when istalled as close as possible to the drivers side of the car.

Step 6. Run a hose from the large heater hose outlet to the bottom of the expansion tank. Run a 1/4" hose from the the steam vent port on the front of engine, to the upper inlet on the expansion tank. Plug the unused port on the tank.

Step 7. The overflow tank should be hooked up. A good place to install this is on the front of the passenger footwell. Run a hose from the radiator cap outlet to the bottom of the overflow tank. Install your radiator cap from a 2000 Camaro SS.

Step 8. Install your fan to the front of the radiator. Most fans come setup as pullers. You will need to flip the fan blade as well as reverse the polarity for the ran to function properly. Verify this information with your fan instructions.
