Idea- rear heater under bus as additional cooling?

Just an idea I had reading some of the posts. Sorry if this has been discussed before.

I read in some of the threads about rear engine busses having overheating problems. My question is, assuming you wanted to remove the rear heater, would mounting the rear heater core under the bus with some kind of fan that comes on with the ignition or thermostat help radiate some of the engine heat? Would it's capacity be enough to make a noticable difference?

I had a similar idea of putting a small radiator on the roof that leads to the engine for cooling on hot days... I look forward to answers for this kind of idea...

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry.

I just saw the identical thread down this page by Case.

I guess great minds think alike
