Walkers Garage Limited
Walkers Garage have been involved in the manufacture and repair
of radiators since the early '80's. Initially much of the work
centred around servicing standard road vehicle units, and indeed
this still accounts for a considerable volume of work; however, as
word spread amongst the rally and race fraternity that here was an
organisation with both the know-how and the interest to design and
manufacture specialist cooling devices - orders quickly followed.
Walkers now make a range of water, oil and air cooling radiators for both independent teams and manufacturers. They can of course turn those skills to repairing existing devices - no job being too small or too big to handle.
A typical example of Walkers design expertise can be seen in the combination radiator and intercooler for the Ford Escort WRC. The two units have to be manufactured to precise tolerances to enable the finished products to coincide within the cramped engine bay of the Escort. The finished products are both incredibly light and yet extremely durable - just as you would expect for a World Rally Car.
the view to the left, the water cooling radiator is masking the
smaller intercooler, which sits just in front of the bigger unit, to
facilitate maximum cooling for the forced-induction engine.
As can be noted below, the tolerance between the two units
requires considerable design co-ordination and skill of manufacture.
which the intercooler displayed below was designed.
So be it a standard off-the-shelf radiator, a much needed repair
to an existing unit or the bespoke construction for a specialist
vehicle, Walkers have the capability and the inspiration to help.
