    Been working on getting the fuel tank installed. I clean it up and painted it with Eastwood tank refinisher. The 69 year old tank looked brand new inside. I was amazed!

    The tank was originally mounted to the left frame rail and to the spare tire well. Since I removed the spare tire well I can now center the tank and run the exhaust pipe down each side,





    I made some brackets using a combination of original and bone pile stuff.

    Working on getting the radiator and cooling fan sorted out. With a shroud I'm about 1/2" too wide. I can try mounting the fan on the inside of the shroud, mount the fan on the radiator and not use the shroud, or use a mechanical fan?

    My other option is buy another electric fan.

    I despise those fosdick electric fans screwed to the radiator core. I have yet to see one of them that will cool the motor properly. Electric fans work well on OEM applications, but that's because they have in-house mechanical engineers on staff to use all the right stuff.

    The best we can do as hot rodders is to use the tried and true 7-blade, 18" diameter mechanical fans bolted to a thermostatically-controlled fan clutch with the blades sitting halfway in and halfway out of a closely-contoured shroud and sucking through the largest radiator core that you can bolt to the frame and frame brackets. My approach to this has always been to seek out a 70's/early 80's big block Impala, Caprice or truck in a boneyard and take all the components including radiator. Cap this off with a quality 190/195 degree thermostat and you're home-free.

    Do not use serpentine pieces unless you use the entire serpentine system. The fan blade is stamped reverse to what you need with a fan belt system.

    Here's some good reading.....
