A couple of pictures from my old build website which still seems to exist even though I stopped my Tiscali account years ago...

You can see that the rad is squeezed up as far as it can go to the top of the cowl. All of the cooling matrix is exposed - only the bottom tank is hidden by the crossmember. As I remember, if you used Marlin's "standard" position at least 25% of the matrix is obscured.

I was even able to use the standard BMW hoses - always a bonus if you ever have to replace them.

And to answer Patrick, its a standard up/down flow - not a crossflow.

Cheers, Robin
