Single pass rads, a list! (possible sticky?)

I've seen several discussions where people were looking for different sizes of single pass rads. Airspirit's database never really made clear which rads were Single and which were dual, and now that it is down, the information is even more needed.

I went through the catalog at Leakycar.com, and compiled the following list of FedCo numbers based on the pictures. As usual the sizes are for the fin areas ONLY, and don't include the tanks. As a very rough guide, I would add about 1.5" to the 'H' dimension for the tanks, more if the rad has end I/O fittings

A few other notes - The applications are not specific, they are what was listed in the catalog with the pictures.

I made notes on most of the I/O fittings, and define them as follows: (assume you are facing the fins, with the tanks at the top and bottom)

Face: fitting is on the same plane as the fins, pointing at you

Side: fitting is on one end of the tank, pointing to the left or right

End: fittings are on the top and bottom of the tank, pointing up or down.

Same: fittings are on the same corners of the tanks on each end (this is not the best for circulation in theory)

Opp.: fittings are on opposite corners of the tanks

not stated - I didn't make a note, look for yourself but I think most are same

I'm not guaranteeing that this is 100% accurate, it's based on notes that I took a long time ago.

All dimensions in inches. Note that in many cases, especially when the rad has long pipes coming off the fittings, the dimensions for the I/O fittings apply only to the ends of the tubes, the actual pipe coming out of the rad may be smaller.
