Question about heater core fan mounting

I'm not really sure how the water flows through this Mustang heater core. Will I dammage it if i force 2 long bolts through the fins to attach a fan?

It might cause a leak but you can always get another one, right?

Actually, after some hunting I found some nice 5.92" x 2." 235 CFM ball bearing fans. Gonna use 2 of them. The frame is 6.75" one direction and 5.92" the other. I'll just put them on sideways and sandwich the heater core between them. The core is 7.75" x6" x2". I know it's gonna be loud, But I'm planning to hang it out the window anyway. Just have to make up a block of wood on the router with 2 holes in it for the lines, and the right profile for the window to close properly. With winter comming, I should be able to get a Nice OC. I'll have to make an enclosure for it.

Thinking a 12x12x8 would be nice. I could put the pump outside too. Found a decent gasketed steel enclosure on ebay for 15.99 gonna buy that. I just have to weld in a center wall and ven the bottom on both sides. Pump on the hot side. Don't think it will ice up with the intake and outlet on the bottom. I might want a stronger pump though. That's a lot of tubing. Mine is rated 526 GPH level, but the output drops to almost zero at 3 ft elevation.

With my water setup it didn't matter if I put a really fast fan on my core or a slow one. Sooo... I got one that I could crank down to spin rather low and saved my ears on the noise. If you going to move your core to the outside I think you would probably benifit from a larger core as well.

That's kinda interesting. I read your post and thought about it. A heater core is so restrictive, that it probably does defeat the purpose to put too much fan on them. I have this 220v fan here that runs whisper quiet on 110v. Moves quite a bit of air through that core. I might just use that. Would save me $40 and I will have the 110v there anyway for the pump.

Okay, and a second pic where I'm not showing off my row of 20-21" monitors.
