You know that's an A/C condenser and the high pressure side. Could it have actually worked?

Not very interesting pic, but I'm testing to see if it works. I didn't want all the weight of the fan hanging on the radiator fins. The holes were already in the radiator support.

I felt the same way so I made the shroud so the fan will pull air thru the entire radiator ,,not just where the fan is,,then bolted the shroud to the Radiator cradle,,,since the radiator sits in front of the cradle on mine I added a 2 in wide strip of dense foam between the shroud and cradle,
Just a precaution.

There was not a lot of aftermarket items avalible to put a BBC in a 53 chevy truck so I had to make a lot of it ,,someday I might update it.

blue truck was when I started on it.

It's getting real now. Our closing is at 9 am tomorrow. I got 1 lift ready to load on the rollback. I had it on 4 2x4's to park a camping trailer under and I have no idea how I got it up there. I got the casters under it, but couldn't find a way to lift it and get it on the ground after removing the blocking. I used the fork lift to assemble it, so I must have used that to raise the legs.



I just hooked up the winch and drug it off the blocks and up the ramp.



It's right up to the winch and barely made it on the tail end.







Apparently my cottonwood tree hanging over the driveway is a little low and the lift leg trimmed some off..

Moving is my least favorite thing I can think of,,especially moving shop equipment and tools,,if both shops were the same size you could set it up like the old shop and be able to find Most stuff,,but for me it has never worked that way,,the roll bac and forklift really makes it eaiser,,,but never easy,,,

Hope you enjoy the new home .

I have been in this house for 18 years. I can't even imagine moving.

My wife and daughter bought me an on line auto upholstery course for my birthday. I have really been enjoying it. Even though I have done my own interiors for years there are always things you pick up when you watch how somebody else does it.

We've been here over 19 years. My shop didn't exist when we moved here. The new shop is about 600 sq ft smaller. I have a contractor coming tomorrow to estimate another pole building for storage of the stuff that isn't going to fit in the existing one. I met with another contractor Tuesday, but he and 2 other pole builders are already booked out to January. The one tomorrow can get me in, in October, so he is the leading candidate right now. I just need to do more research on Wick buildings for quality.

We did the final walk thru last night and it all looks good. The seller had an estate sale last Saturday and we were concerned it would get beat up with people trampling around and moving furniture out. We attended the sale and bought the wicker furniture she had in the screen room and the John Deere lawn tractor. The Toro I have here is 17 years old with 870 hours on it and quite worn out, so I will leave it for the next owner to have something to maintain the "estate" with..

The fan manages to cool around town and gets more airflow on the highway, but the real reason it has no shroud is because I only have 1/2" between the fan and the water pump pulley. A BBC also.

If you move the radiator in front you might fit a shroud,,But in my opinion they dont look as good mounted in the front,,i cut out a front cover to hide mine ,but cant get the picture to post..

EDIT

I had to take picture of the screen with my phone,and color is not correct,,,i dont have a Pink truck,,lol.

I was out under my big shade tree installing an air deverter valve and replacing all the vacumn hoses..

The wind picked up a LOT,and I heard a crash,,one of my big walnut trees fell taking down 4 other trees and covered one boat completely and partially fell on another one,,it is raining now so I cant see how much damage



it was only about 50 foot from a rental mobile home out to the side of my house,

My radiator is already in the front. That's the 6 cylinder position. Well I should say my radiator is in a box I didn't even open yet. The last one they sent was for behind the radiator support, the shorter V8 position.

I will also have to mount mine in the front on my 55 it was originally a 6 cyl so all the holes are already there,,and I wont be running a short pump because brackets and pulleys are to hard to find to run air and PS,, so I will run the serpentine belt systems.it should give a little extra room,,or that is what I am hoping.
