Yes, the serpentine belt in the rear of the--in this case--ISB. Thank you. Before I'm corrected on "touch crowd" I meant to spell "tough" crowd. But, it is also a "touchy" crowd. Safe travels to all--those that drive side radiators and those that drive rear radiators.

My observation has been, it the HP is 400 or less, rear mount, over 400HP, side mount. I'm sure there may be some exceptions, just a rule of thumb.

You are right, my friend has a Newmar Essex on a Spartan K3 chassis, side radiator, 500HP Cummins. Mine is in my signature block, Spartan MM chassis, side radiator, 350HP Cummins.

On my American Eagle I have a 350 HP ISC Cummins with a side radiator... thinking 400 HP might be a little high for a rule of thumb. Do like the engine access and have plenty of storage with sr.

yeah, we have a 300hp Cat 3156B on a Freightliner chassis with side radiator. I didn't know enough about these things when we bought it but after working around it since, a side radiator would be big factor in a buying decision

Didn't take the radiator into account when we purchased. Our Fleetwood has a 380 HP Cummins ISC on a Freightliner chassis with a rear radiator. Hopefully that won't be a problem.
