34 street beast

hey guys,
anyone know where I can find a hood for
my 34 street beast?took my old hood to the body
shop to repair a few cracks around the louvers,
and it turned into a night mare.the body shop guy
stripped the hood,fixed the cracks.set the hood back
on the place to repaint,and it cracked again!!he said
that the louvers being metal and the hood fiberglass
caused it to crack.he now wants to take out the louvers,
put the hood on the car,and fiberglass in the holes.
I already owe him over 200 dollars.if I could just find
another street beast hood,it would be cheaper.
appreciate any help.

35terraplane Dave I think IMO you should have a shroud on it, I will bet that will take care of the over heating. I would put a 190 stat in it, you need to slow the water down so it can get cooled in the Rad.. A lot of guys go smaller on the stat. that the water goes through too fast to get cooled.

I did get a rad from walker, better but still runs hot, new rad, new water pump, 160 and 185 thermostat, new cooling fan 3300 cfm fan is installed as a puller , check timing,8 degrees, new plugs, ign wires ,cap rotor converted to HEI. most was done before I knew I had an over heat problem, I am replaceing the EGR valve it is leaking.chevy 350 1973 engine. was at 240 while driving now down to 200 and I do not have air conditioning yet. I am also using the temp gauge on the dash and a hand held temp gun.

street beast Radiator help

I need some info and or pictures if you can help, 1934 ford 3 window coupe, overheating. My radiator is 16 inch by 16 inch that is core only the tanks make it a little bigger, I see I should have a radiator 27 tall, it must slant back or it would hit the rack and pinion steering.

Thank you
Dave

35terraplane My car didn't have a lower cover it was like a stock car. That must have been something that they came out with later.

back up light

I added a back up light to my car, it is LED and does not stand out ,almost do not even know it is there until you back up, but works great.

Brickyard - Does your bolts go thru the bottom edge of the upper dash?



Here's my 3 point, it's really mounted too low. There is a plastic arm on the back of the seats that the strap needs to go around to make the strap lay properly across my chest. You can sorta see on the passenger seat. However, in a fender bender the strap will break free from the arm. I also noticed the seat backs don't lock in the up position which isn't good either. Not sure what's going on there.......

no bolts right now it just sits there give it a little push up and see if it moves , if not look for screws.

To unplug the harness I installed my own connectors from a wrecked car, I did not want to unplug every switch etc, so I have 4 plugs that disconnect the dash.

Huh. I'll have to give it a try once we warm up a little. Talking "another" big snowstorm Thu/Fri. Don't want to turn on the heat in the garage given the price of propane lately.

Thanks for the info, Dave!
