I love fender well headers on almost anything. Lot going on here.

They have a tilt steering wheel on a steep angle with a linkage that goes under the motor mount and around the fuel pump to a steering box with dropped pit man arm to have crossover steering. One of the cleaner/safer ways to go about it.

I would probably like anything as long as it was tastefully done.

So, how long does my good luck last? Not long......


So, the imbeciles pack male/male adapter flare/straight thread adapters.


Who knows what the proper name/size for a fitting would be to fit the rad and have a female flare for my standard 5/16" tranny lines?



The threads in the rad are the same as the threads on the flare nut. 20 TPI. And they appear to be non tapered like the adapter is. T tape for sealing?


I don't mind buying something, I just don't know what to buy....these brass fittings are too confusing for me....

I keep 2 of these on hand. You should be able to find them at a local auto parts or hardware store.

I have no idea why that metal in my hand looks rusty or candy apple orange or what ever, it's brand new clean metal. Anyway, got out there and cut away the passenger side in what I believe is the last rust repair on the cab. I made the patch for the inner piece and then took off for my 3 mile walk.

The one I linked has the correct thread size. It's not an actual 1/2" size. It's 5/16 same as the 5/16 tranny line tube.



Are you able to check how many threads per inch yours has?

Some custom with a K paint would look right at home on there. I been barking up the wrong tree, that black one was supposed to be grey. So this dude is moving in the other direction. We need to come up with something that will grab him and get him to say "Yes, that!" but theres plenty of time.

I spent yesterday finishing up the fabbed right quarter patch on the '59 and assuring that the mud man won't have any dramas with it. Now closing in on preparation of the right trunk pan-
