    My feet are cold and wet and I just closed up shop for the day. If this rain keeps up I may have to get out my work boots to keep dry and warm. But not today, the pressure isn't that great yet.

    I have been told to do the exact same thing......don't ask me if I had my phone with me because the answer would be ....NO!!!

    Not that the current pandemic situation has had much to do with my daily routine of getting into the cave around 9 AM and leaving around 4 PM, with a mid-day stop for bite, but every once in while, it all falls into place and gets a partial check mark on the list of getting this car re-assembled.

    A number of days of grinding, raising the body to change the pads under the blocks, tightening, loosening, put the hood in place, take it off . . . . . again and again!

    Today things culminated in success and I was able to get the radiator, shell and hood installed to almost complete satisfaction. The shell will have to come off once again for a little more grinding to give it sufficient clearance at the lower shell and top of the front fender intersection. They say that these replacement radiator shells require some fitting, well that is an understatement.

    I then added on the cowl lamps, just to add some bling!! I love the shiny bits on a dark car!!

    Finally a Hood and Rad Shell!.jpg

    I had enough of the hood fiddling for the day so I insulated the trunk lid installed the handle and set it into place. It fits great.

    Thought I found a distributor I could rebuild. I wasn't that lucky.

    Killed two birds with one stone. I had about 1/2 gal of old Gas and 1/2 gal of Kerosene that needed to go and a rear end that needed to be cleaned. With a toilet brush attached to a piece of angle iron, I got the rear end cleaned of 90 year old 600w and its ready to go to the blaster. This is a nasty job so glad to get it behind me.

    The wife and I went for a drive, checking out all the beautiful flowers and trees blooming now and stopped to watch some deer grazing in a field. Then watched the odometer roll over to 13,000 just as we got back home.

    Had something to do with evening out the temperature within the block and some trials he did with sensors. His knowledge of thermodynamics was above my pay grade! Bob retired awhile ago. He sold all his equipment, moved west, and I lost track of him.

    Still dreaming of one (more or reasonably-priced ones pops up even on epay) and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy :-)

    Yes- The builder was preparing the block for vintage racing and runs a coolant line to that spot in order to prevent excess heat in #3 and #4. His engines developed 200 HP plus and with a high constant demand and RMP's balanced block temp was required. The client for this build backed out and I was next in line for a build so I got the block. That's why it has a full pressurized oil system and insert bearings along with a high pressure/volume oil pump. I had him use the stock cam, head, valves, etc. as I had no need for a high performance engine. With a second oversize bore and just enough shaved off the head to true it I get a little more power so I haven't needed to downshift on reasonable hills.

    You have a coolant plug just below the engine block number pad?
