Little more progress today. The pressure gauge will be there to set fuel pressure then it gets removed.

The short hose was my blunder this morning, didn’t know 5100psi hose would be so stiff. What you see hooked up with the mile long hose is what I had to work with.

Just maybe with a prayer, I’ll get it started tomorrow evening or Wednesday morning. I’ve been at this for two weeks and every step almost has been a fight.

The Lincoln fan won’t fit at all, hits the water pump pulley. Radiator is in, had to space the driver side fan forward a little and shave the power steering pulley nut a touch.

As you can see in the picture, I need to make a 180 bend down from the radiator outlet to get under the alternator pulley and over to the water pump. Could I treat this like an intercooler and use solid pipe but with flex couplings at the hose barbs? If not, I may have to get the barb welded on straight vs the 45 angle up it is now or even turned down a few degrees.

I have not figured out why the budget circle track aluminum radiator manufacturers are putting those goofy angle up lower outlets on those radiators. No factory radiator comes that way with the exception of some Corvette and Big Block truck models.

You can use aluminum or stainless piping and short sleeve connectors for flexibility, a lot of racers set things up that way.
I believe the thinking is the less hose there is, the less chance of a rupture.

That would work except I need to turn from the rad outlet straight down to clear the alternator pulley, then come around under the alt bracket, then up to the water pump. Just not enough room to bend down at the rad.

I'll call in the am and see if a rad shop can weld the barb on straight or even better, slightly aimed down, then see if I can get a hose to fit, it's so close to the alternator belt everywhere. I may have to do the pipe and flex joints if I can't get a hose to fit.

The radiator barb is 1.5" and the water pump is 2", do they make hoses with different size ends?

You could use a "spacer" hose inside the 2" to bring it down to 1-1/2"


Use any fittings you need to git er done.

oval racers tend to use the universal straight hoses that have the wire in them, no molded hose, so pointing the rad connection at the pump helps a little

Got real lucky, welding shop flipped the outlet over and it lined up great. Got a hose with different ends that fits perfect as well.

Got to finish up vacuum hoses and fuel line to the carb, then try and start it.

My gas pedal is a floor mounted thing, the pedal is cracked and is hanging up the throttle linkage, the part the pedal sits on has a boss for a screw or bolt, can I just put a regular pedal on that and be fine, or do I need to stick with a floor mount?

That's a mechanical linkage pedal assembly, right?? Not a cable??

Been a while since I dealt with one but from what I remember the pedal has two cup like sockets at the bottom and those snap onto two studs with pivot ball heads, then the upper end just rests on the spoon end of the linkage arm that comes through the firewall.
The spoon end on the linkage doesn't have a cross drilled hole for the pivot pin that the newer hanging pedal used to fasten the pad to the spoon arm.

Is there an anti-collapse spring inside that radiator hose?? Those flex comvoluted hoses are known for collapsing at a bend rather easily if there isn't. They restrict flow also.
I hate the things and refuse to use them, molded hoses or straight hose, molded elbows/tubing elbows and straight tubing fit ups for me.
Convoluted are only for temporary use when you break-down out on the road and do a roadside repair just to get it home.

Take a deep breath and prepare, yes it has a collapse spring in it. The flex hose was a last ditch effort thing, was not going to be my first choice.

The pedal is exactly what you described, two pivot balls in the floor and the pedal just rests on the rollers on the linkage arm. I'll snap a pic shortly to show you what I'm thinking.

Here’s the linkage rod. If there’s a pedal with a thick wire to slide in the middle part, I’m good I’d think.

Last picture is the gap between alternator belt and lower radiator hose, didn’t get a good enough shot earlier.

On the lower hose, my thought would be a aluminum or stainless elbow and two 4" long sections of straight hose for the connecting ends.

It looks clean, like the hoses in this video, at the 4:50 mark -.

You might get the newer style hanging pedal pad to fit that arm...but you would have to grind the rivets off and remove the rollers and pin from the current arm and find a correct size "hitch pin" or screw and nut to fit through the arm hole and drill the pedal to match. Don't forget the hanging style pedal has a spring on the back of it yo hold it up flat, otherwise it will teeter out at the top and under at the bottom, hanging on an odd angle.

I'll see what I can find for a pedal, not like new assemblies are rediculous expensive. May even get a hot foot for tackiness sake,lol.


That does look good, my next thought if I couldn't find a hose was to have a muffler shop bend something up and have silicone hose joints, but luckily, $8.22 hose fixed it all.

Easiest way I found to post a video is to upload it to youtube and paste the link here.
