I’m trying to get an eta on a radiator shroud and fans from CBR.

It’s been a beyond slow process. I think I first tried to order it in November 2020...

And then finally got Clint to take the order in January or February 21...

ive called and called and left a ton of messages, tried email, etc. I once got a “it’s going to be built this week”... but that’s been over a month now.

I can’t get Georgeanna or Clint to return an email or call about when the shroud/fans will be built and shipped.

only thing my build is waiting on now is the shroud and fan and some RCV axles .

(the rcv axles is another mess. Supposed to be shipped first of January. But I have the old axles to run in the mean time. But I Cant drive the truck with out the fans)

ugh, but if anyone is local to CBR, or knows Clint. Can you ask him to please just return the email or call.

And to please actually put it on the build schedule and let me know when

I am just about done. It looks like PWR makes a radiator that is 31 x 19. So that should be the same size essentially as the CBR 1013.
The PW our radiator has dual brushless fans in the shroud. $1600 is an awful lot especially since I’ve already paid for the CBR fan and to shrouds and fans as it is.

I am going to call PWR tomorrow and I guess if the radiator is more or less the same size order it.


ALUMINUM RADIATOR MODULE

Off-Road Double Pass Radiator Module 31″ x 19″ w/ 20 Port Fittings (with Brushless Fans)​

SKU: CR-UC-RPR044D

I am a dumb arsey I thought my radiator was 31x19...

Hence calling pwr since I was hoping it would be a direct swap.

sadly it’s 28x19..... so now it’s got to be a little more tricky.

I’m glad I figured that out with out just ordering the part...
Measure 3 times and TAKE NOTES should be my new rule.

pwr is going to see what they can build.

seems this brushless fan need is being an issue. Thanks Nick. Smh....

Clint is a nice guy to talk to but... man.
Why does it take squeaky wheels to get a reply.

It took an act of God to get the details of the shroud and fan asselmbkh that he had planned (?) and it was an inch and a half thicker than the current set up. Not going to work.

I asked if he can make a 16 (15.2 inch) and an 11 (10 inch) fan shroud. So an offset two fan shroud.

it will push 1972 and 1345 cfm so hopefully that will solve my cooling issues and be thin enough for the supercharger pulley/belt...

and of course, all of a sudden my shroud was on the “to be built this week” list again.

Again, Clint is a real nice guy and the parts are great. But holy smokes, I wonder if it’s because I’m a nobody and the race trucks take priority and keep shoving me back.

fingers crossed that the shroud gets built in the next 10 days. Because after that, I need something new. Fool me once, my bad, fool me twice... my bad ... fool me three times... my bad... fool me the fourth time????
I’m an idiot and won’t be fooled a 5th.

(I think having the big issue in my life made me overlook the delay issue and it seemed small potatoes.)

If you have the radiator and fans, can a aluminum guy fab you a shroud that works, there are tons of guys with the talent to make one

Sadly not near me. I can weld aluminum, but I don’t have a break.
It ended up getting so head achey. It was hire it out.

wveryone wanted me to bring the truck to them, and it drove the price up way past having the shroud made by cbr...

anyways, fingers crossed they actually follow through and make this shroud as promised and with in the next week and a half.
Again, I like their stuff, I really do. Just this shroud has been a nightmare. Hopefully the issues have been solved!
