    Just a fairly easy question that I can't seem to find the answer to via Google.

    I was looking at a sectioned Packard Merlin a few days ago and was wondering about the cooling system. I could see the coolant pump for the engine coolant system but couldn't work out how the intercooler (which I think is known by many as the aftercooler) coolant got circulated. Does it have it's own separate pump or not?

    Cheers Julian.

    Yes, the inter-cooler is served with separate pump, tubes and radiator.

    For those interested here's how the V1710-119 and supercharger aftercooler was cooled in the P-51J
