I have a 1980 engine. I took some pics from that area. It's cramped in there with the intercooler and my wiring could be different....

- there's a hard line with a bracket/tab on it, right now it's sitting in between the coolant housing attached to the head, and the cylinder thing (unsure what that is). This position feels strang ...

Is it ready for more test runs?

I put everything back together Monday night...installed the new cooling fan...mounted the shroud and fans...replaced the air box...etc.

I filled the intercooler w ...

The driver's side radiator fan worked well...until it didn't. It started making a bad sounding noise and seized up. I removed the fan assembly today. When I turned the fan by hand it sounds l ...

I moved over the small SPAL fan. If it helps I might mount a second fan on the right side to keep things cool while sitting in traffic. As I was mounting the new intercooler radiator I couldn't he ...

I'm wondering if something could be printed for this? Even a support cage of some sort

That's an idea. As I was looking at it, some sort of bracket supporting it from underneath might help. In ...

I needed to reroute the radiator hose that runs from the intercooler to the hot side of the intercooler radiator. Rather than going all the way to the bottom near the valance, I pulled the line thro ...
