Mike,

Is the B V8 radiator brass or aluminum ?

Is it much bigger than an 1800 cc B engine radiator.

How much do you need for it ?

Phillip, if it's built to correct original specs, it should measure 14.25" from tank to tank, where the comparable (1800cc MGB) radiator would have measured 10.5". The tanks should be brass, and I believe the core (tubes and fins) should be copper. You can see pictures of similar radiators, installed, several places on this website.

Here's a photo of Dave Wellings' very "original" factory MGB GT V8.

You can see the hoses a little better here: [www.britishv8.org]
