Why doesn't this cutaway show the location of the engine radiator? I am sure the in-line 6 is water-cooled since it can be driven on land like a truck. Please respond.

Paul (above):
I don’t know why this cutaway does not show the radiator but it had one, as you say. It sits directly ahead of the engine block, as in the CCKW truck on which the DUKW was based.
