After some discussion on the forum I decided to go ahead with the flaps in the shrouds. Conclusion it didn’t change anything. My next step will be to do away with the shrouds and mount the fans directly to the radiator. Updates to follow.

Well that didn’t last long. While at a car show I noticed that my battery box looked tilted. When I got home I found that my battery box mount had broken. I welded the broken pieces back together and reinforced the mount with a plate covering the entire back of the mount.

After posting on the forum about a battery charging issue, getting a lot of opinions, and darn near starting WW III. I changed the alternator battery wire from 10 gauge to 4 gauge. I up graded to an AGM Group 78 battery, but it would not fit my drop out battery box. The battery itself would fit the box but the handle wouldn’t. The sales man told me it I cut the sides of the battery to make it fit would void my warranty. So I had to modify the box.

05-13-2016 04:17 PM Engine hoist + winch =
As stated many times I usually work by myself. So when I needed to change my transmission I needed a way to lift and hold it. I could crawl in and out of my truck to pump and release the hoist, that was not happening, I had a winch laying around the shop and I got an idea. I found a piece of angle iron that would fit into the square tube on my hoist and mounted my winch to it. Raising and lowering the transmission was as simple as pushing a button.
