Update on #1011
« on: January 25, 2013, 09:16:37 pm »
Finally have HM1011 registered and have 100 miles on it but still no paint. Longest build ever, but it sure has been fun. Just added a remote filter adapter and oil cooler. Also going to make a fan shroud to help with the Arizona heat. I'll try a pic now and more later. One nice thing about the first legal ride was coming back without a single problem. Very nice ride and handling. Been playing with shock adjustments and tire pressures and have it right were it will stay for now. It has about 3 times the HP it needs so it's just right. Alot of fun but must be VERY carefull with the go pedal.  Dan

Dan, congratulations!! I'm right behind you for the longest build. Trying to get the painting done, but Christmas and the cold weather have slowed things down. Post more pics of your build.

Congrats Dan.
Looks like you're running the Mocal sandwich plate thermostat, but what's the unit sitting on top?
I currently have my car off the road for an oil cooler install and was thinking about the Mocal unit.
Thanks

Hey Matt, It is Earls erl-502 thermostat sandwich, I drilled it for the temp gauge and it is between the filter and Finishlines remote filter kit. They have both the block and filter parts on sale and they are really nice pieces. Had to get an adapter to fit Ford filters because the remote is 22mm. I need to take pics of how the cooler lines are routed, it is way off from original (like everything else) but I really like it. Working on a fan shroud now and trying to find the right temp switch to turn the fan on. It' great to hear from you guys, it's been a while.  Dan #1011

OK, If you are into "original" please close your eyes. Some pics of how I routed the cooler hoses. I like the shortest clean-route method. Everything works fine and I like it so this is how it will be. The cooler is bypassed until 180 degrees. Last drive oil ended up at 212 and the water was 193. The shrouds will be done by Phoenix heat time so will see what happens then. The pics actually come out OK when you click on them. Dan #1011

Dan,
That looks great!!! Just a question though, I see in your last picture that you don't have aluminum on the side going from the front opening to the side of the radiator, did you not use or get them?

Dusty, How strange is this. Thats exactly what I'm doing right now, just drilling, cutting and grinding. This should help funnel more air through the radiator. Do we really deserve to have this much fun.  Dan  #1011

Dan,
That will funnel alot more air through the radiator! It is fun isn't it but have to come up with more to do when you think you are 100% complete ;D It is looking great though!

OK, Got the radiator sides on so I updated the photo.  When you look at the car it looks like it has 3 radiators.   8) Dan

OK, Finally finished my shroud project and I really like it. Makes a huge difference on how much air it sucks in. I found the start of this piece at a wholesale supply place. The size is perfect for these radiators- 19 3/4 x 21 3/4 x 1 1/4 and it's 13 gauge. See what ya think.  Dan  #1011

Dan, that looks great and I bet it should help in the cooling process tremendously! It looks like a pan or cover for something, do you know what it was for? Oh and your side panel looks great now that its in place.
