welcome ..in my opinion , for the guy starting out, plumb the dual rad system in series to avoid air pockets. I think if you are NOT running an electric water pump. you should have bleeders at each radiator as a minimum. These can be simple petcock fittings. You need a radiator cap at the max height of the system and attached to the water expansion tank ( burp can). Finally you need an over flow can as well.
it means that i will have to use 2 radiators with perfect calculation having lateral flow,Without radiator cap arrangement on it, with only water inlet and outlet present and should be connected in series connection, And place the water expansion tank having radiator cap at max height,..

and what is bleeders at each radiator and the expansion tank is a can with radiator cap arrangement on it and hollow frm inside with one inlet & one outlet for water on it?? -explain...

expansion tank has inlet and outlet and radiator cap
note the overflow tube under the radiator cap mount
.also temperature sensor mount should be provided

petcock permits bleeding air from radiator and lines
