Yup you could set of the entire nuclear arsenals of the world and change the composition very little but the life forms would change substantially.

Cat 330 with rear radiator. Normal flat highway, all things equal, it ran just below 3/4 on the gauge. Any cermountable hills it would rise just above 3/4. After cleaning it remains right at 1/2 gauge regardless. The air flow out the back after cleaning increased significantly at idle. I could immediately tell the difference just by "feeling" the air flow. I could also tell a big difference when stopping at rest areas. She doesn't have that hot smell anymore.

Dennis, does your coach have the Medallion Info center? I relocated mine so it is easy to see and set it so the engine temperature is always displayed. That way I can easily see if either/both of the radiators are becoming clogged, or if that Walmart shopping bag that blew in front of me got sucked up and plastered all over the CAC (it did, and did the temperatures ever climb fast!)

one thing many people think is if they have a 400 ISL and rear radiator that the next manufacturer is the same sq inches as the next..this is specked by cost and weight of MH by the builder. depth also like 2 rows deep or 4 rows deep for thickness

The Medallion seems like a pretty neat data center. Do you know if it is applicable to a freight liner with a CAT 330? Who makes it?
Nice job in the mounting
