Rob some times it feels like 3 forward and 2 back  but we try to keep after it and get something done each week.

We had out of town drop by-- Francis. Andy came over and later Marty dropped off the almost completed "radiator in a box" done today and I showed him the new welder and Plasma cutter. We also discussed some options on the heating coil we will put in the dry sump tank.

2-22-12  you can see the weld in the tank where they inserted the blocking tab that makes it into a 2 pass.

Well---the lesson of the day is----ta da--- Most of the race stuff has 5/16 dia. rods on their master cyls and most of the street rod stuff has 3/8  so I now need to make or find me a 5/16" female to 3/8" male adapter to make the brakes work.

Rex, do you have any renderings of the Thud Spud with the wild weasel nose? It would be good to look at the both with renderings from the sane angle.

T-man  It is a 2 pass radiator in a box with an internal baffle, that makes the water cross through, go up, then back through before exiting.  We haven't installed the bungs yet for the cooling water in, the heated water out or the pump out bung for taking the water out for warming up the eng. 

We will also have a heated water line from under the thermostat to go through the dry sump tank to heat the oil and then back to the intake side of the water pump.  We may or may not run a second thermostat in that line to close it off when its up to temp.

Woody,
Is the red spot just in front of the rear tires where the salt is going to stick to the body??

Sparky let me know, confidentially, that he's planning a water misting in that area.  He figures by the two, the salt build-up will streamline the back wheels and add 10 MPH.  He'll kick it off on the way to Impound.
