Time to start the winter project(s)
Dec 22, 2007 | Views: 476
Since I had to drain all the coolant for this project, I'm upgrading to an aluminum Griffin radiator.
Since I'm replacing the radiator I might as well install that 16" electric fan I got laying around. Of course to mount the fan I have to fabricate a shroud and install a thermal switch to run it.
Since the top of the engine will be ripped apart I'm adding some gauges since my car only has idiot lights. I got 2-1/16" Autometer Ultra Lite oil pressure, water temp and voltmeter gauges. Eventually I want to have all Autometer gauges, but I couldn't afford to buy all the ones I want at the same time.
And lastly, since most of the engine wiring is disconnected I'm going to try to organize it better when I put it all back together. I had a lot of the wires just zip tied out of the way to get the car running, but it looks pretty bad. I hate when a guy spends a ton of time and money building a sweet ass engine and then they just throw the wiring together.
