If your're talking about a reverse rotation pump, you have to remove the serpentine belt set up and use standart rotation pulley set up.The radiator works the same on both.If you're talking a reverse flow LT1 I don't thing you can change without a diferent motor.Bill.

If you use the factory clutch fan from the reverse flow on the standard rotation pump you swapped to, it will overheat...

the 350 was a 1991 out of a van[ same as the radiator]

it is on the engine start up unit right now --no fan on the engine -but big fans blowing thru the radiator

i have an older style radiator we are changing to tomorrow and trying that out

it really acts like it does not flow properly thru the radiator --it gets 210 pretty quick--so we shut it down--sometimes in 2 minutes other times it will go 10 minutes before heating up

by the way --NEW RADIATOR--NEW WATER PUMP-NEW BELT--AND NEW ENGINE BUILD

ops: ops: :cry: :cry:
