09-20-2012 06:55 PM 1930u- Gas Tank
I considered a number of different gas tank designs but found this universal unit to be perfect for my application. It holds 14 gallons and has a baffling system and anti roll over protection. Not as safe as a fuel cell but itís very good product. It also has pre-punched holes for mounting boltís screws and straps.

09-16-2012 06:36 PM 1930u- Radiator, Fan and Condenser in place
This was a pretty hard job. You must be very careful not to damage the condenser and radiator core. My plan is to add a section to the grill shell to hide the mounting areas.

09-16-2012 06:18 PM 1930u- Now the Condenser
I installed the Condenser in front of the radiator. The instructions said to space the condenser 1/2" to 3/4" from the radiator core. This worked out well and now I have a complete modular unit.

09-16-2012 06:01 PM 1930u- Radiator, Fan and Condenser
I made these mounting tabs and installed them on the inside of the fan shroud. I held them in place with JB Weld and after it dried, I drilled and installed rivot's to hold them in place. The bolts pass through the verticle frame mounts and the Radiator mounting tabs. It is very strong and I won't need to use radiator to firewall support rods.

09-16-2012 05:49 PM 1930u- Radiator, Fan and Condenser
I havenít worked on the 30 lately but I hit it hard this weekend. Iím using a 1940 Buick Radiator it has a 2Ē high performance core. I had the Radiator shop, rod it out and pressure test to 15 PSI. They also did a flow test and said all is well. Itís made of Copper, Brass and even has some cast iron in the tanks.

I found a OEM design electric fan the other day at a swap meet. I was hesitant to buy it but for $2, I figured what the heckÖIíll make it work. I also bought an after market Hot Rod AC/Heater kit, so I also had to mount the condenser.

Everything worked out great but it was a lot of work. Hereís a few pictures.
