05-31-2014 09:59 PM Tranny Cooler
The bracket was located on the center brace for the grill, the holes were drilled, and 1/4'' bolts were installed. The pop rivets are there to make sure there would be room for them behind the flange of the brace. The cooler was then put in place with some clecos.

The cooler lines were cut to final length. Tube to AN adapters were installed. Hose was cut and ends installed.

Did not get the top bracket tabs made and welded in for the upper front fan mount. Once that is done and some minor adjustments are made to the holes for the tranny cooler lines. The front will be basically done.

Got off to a slow start this AM. Spent a little bit of time making grit and calcium dispensers for the chickens. Need to finish one more bottle (and one more tin of cat food!).

Marked off all the center lines, brake lines, cut lines, and bead lines. Steph helped me roll the beads. The cuts were made with snips, cut-off wheels, and metal cutting blade in a saber saw.

Mounting holes were drilled using the cooler as a guide. Clecos are used to temporarily hold the cooler to the new bracket. Pop rivets will be used once the bracket is painted.

05-28-2014 09:02 PM Fan Mount
The fan was bolted to the ''chin''. It leaned forward pretty heavily. A little hammer and dolly work put it straight. A piece of angle was cut and drilled to mount the top. Next step will be to cut a couple of tabs to mount the angle to the core support.

Working on an idea for mounting the tranny cooler. Hope to have these last little things done by the end of the weekend coming up.

05-26-2014 03:39 PM Front Fan and Tranny Lines
The front sheet metal was reassembled. The front fan was spaced off the condenser by using two cut-offs from the fan rubber washers on each side. The locations of the holes were scribed in and drilled.

The transmission cooler lines were installed. The supply line was cut off and the short line that goes from the auxiliary cooler to the cooler in the lower radiator tank had a flare put in, the flare nut put on, and a 180 deg. bend put in it so it will run along side the supply line.

Storms came in again, so the day was cut short. Based on the weather forecast, it may be Friday or Saturday until I can work on it again.

05-25-2014 10:04 PM Fans
Finished up the big fan install. Still need to finish trim the rubber washer and also need to knock down the corners on the angles. But I wanted to get it on the car to verify the fan to engine clearance. Unless a motor mount breaks it has plenty of clearance.

The small fan is also going to be mounted to something other than the condenser. I carefully removed the speed nuts off the ''tube cutters'' and removed the fan. I know the bottom will bolt to the ''chin'' but I haven't figured the top out yet.

Storms came in so the cars went in the garage to prevent hail damage and I went out.
