Re: [Chrysler300] 300G Radiator fan shroud over heating problems

Second that . Need 4 row core and they cost $!. A 3 row “rated 4row “ is not the same . Has to be radiator — if all that is new and on correctly? Not sure why anyone would  cut the shroud? It was designed correctly , if the original one? Have to have that right . A front fan should not be needed , all this worked stock without it , and might not help as ac core is a distance in  front of cooling core. Plus it blocks air flow some in center where motor is . Plus they take 20- 25-amp . The car alternator will not like that with Ac system running ,
In Mopar magazine , the one out of New Orleans, someone advertises newly made Mopar radiators including 4 row for restoration , mainly  geared to big hemi etc . But says real  4 row, but almost 1000. I think all of them use similar cores in the large sizes , within # of tube rows . 
Big $—  but used or old is a crap shoot ... ?? 
I had electric , only, on a 480” non ac 440, it overheated even at idle . Went back to pump mounted , not finished yet , used a flex fan . ( due to lack of knowledge and cost about various clutch fans and ac fan , which I think has 7 blades, but not sure of that either) . If you have all original ac stuff it should work , if radiator good. Hope this helps

Having a "new radiator" doesn't mean anything.  What matters is whether you have a core in it that has very high fin density.  If you didn't pay somewhere in the $500 range out the door for it, it doesn't.  Nothing else substitutes for a good radiator.  A standard replacement is junk.  I live in California where temperatures are well above 95F much of the time, so I have some experience with a/c cars.

Hi everyone, I'm back on the same subject over heating on my 300G with A/C, with new radiator, recovery tank and new clutch fan.  I live in the San Antonio Texas area and during the summer months when our temperatures reach 95 degrees + I have an over heating problems. If the temperatures stay below 90 degrees no problem. The radiator shroud  has been cut back so the fan is not covered by the shroud. So I'm looking for radiator shroud that will fit the 300G.  One other question has anyone used an electric fan in front of the A/C radiator to help cooling problems? Thanks
