    I'll follow this one . Thanks for posting. Noticed you use photobucket. Consider loading pics straight to hamb. Might save some future grief.

    Nice little A-V8 chassis there. Also using 'T' rear spring on my '27 tub. Get ready to lose some leaves back there...T spring is stiffer than a snake with rigor mortis!
    Who dropped the front axle? Nice shape there...

    so, I followed the directions and it didn't work out. Welded the mounts in ,tried to mount a radiator and no way, the fan blade was into the fins.
    So called Pete & Jakes and the guy remembers vaguely that happening to him years back on a friends build. Something about the mercury flathead water pumps....
    The pics will show how far back I moved them...... P1040391.JPG P1040392.JPG P1040393.JPG

    You do realize your instruction sheet says 48 to Model A? I think your motor is a few year newer,

    that's one way of reading it......since the model A didn't have a flathead I read that as pertaining to model a to '48 frame
