A mile stone of small sort  yesterday--- finally understood where the transfer pump wanted to be mounted, right side just below the fuel cell and in front of the mech. fuel pump---third attempt. This is the pump that moves the water from the radiator in a box back to the coolant storage tank.  We do this wen we warm up the eng so that we do not heat the cooling water.

 The right side of the car is getting filled up because I am trying to leave   the area in front of the dry sump pump open so that I can get a battery impact wrench in there to be able to spin it to prime the oiling system.  I still need to put hose clamps on a lot of this stuff.  Lots of hoses.  Then on to the oiling system---will need to make up a new intake hose for the dry sum pump---the Barnes is at the back of the pump the Moroso was close to the frt.

right side:
 upper metal hose fuel from pump to pressure regulator,
 ribbed hose is the coolant water from back of car to the radiator in a box,
upper blue hose, eng water from under the heater connection under the thermostat housing to the heat exchanger mounted in the dry sump tank, and the lower blue is the return going back to the heater return fitting on the water pump inlet
the rh black hose is from a bottom fitting on the radiator in a box to the inlet side of the transfer pump and then returns to the coolant tank at the rear of the car via a 3/4 inch hose.

the small stainless steel line is a fire nozzle supply line.

right side but lower shot angle

left side looking at the same stuff

Sparky,
     Get an angle drive for the drill motor, less space in front needed.
