  1. I think a shroud increases velocity thru the rad. Without a shroud you can feel the air going to the side of the fan. The factory shroud I have seen looks a little difficult to work with because it is a one piece design instead of a 2 piece top and bottom half bolted together.

  3. I think the article I read somewhere months age stated that PTFE seals are made with out springs. Web Link seal info to Victor Reinz https://www.victorreinz.com/en/service-downloads/practical-information/ptfe-oil-seals-and-their-installation.aspx?regionhttps://www.victorreinz.com/en/service-downloads/practical-information/ptfe-oil-seals-and-their-installation.aspx?regionhttps://www.victorreinz.com/en/service-downloads/practical-information/ptfe-oil-seals-and-their-installation.aspx?region
  4. PTFE SEALS ARE TO BE INSTALLED DRY and the journal surface like new condition, no grooves or pitted. The viton seal is probably the more popular and reliable.
  5. I put a bottle there for the coolant radiator overflow,
  6. The top tubes are probably half clogged. Take it to a Radiator repair shop for a flow test and estimate for a cleaning.
  7. The old design carb engines Chevy V8 is 90 degrees wide and the Ford is at 60 allowing more room between the inner strut fenders. Have seen these swaps in internet photos only. Wonder how much room to remove exhaust manifolds or change spark plugs. The Ford probably is longer because of the timing chain water pump housing means less clearance for radiator. Ford front mounted Dist. is an advantage. Each company make a V6 same degrees benefit of 1 cylinder shorter. Save weight with aluminum heads, intake manifold and water pump cost $
  8. Place the straight section of the ring in a vise and use pliers to bend the crocked section back into place. You might get 80% there.
  9. A Bent ring will not seat properly fully into the groove.
  10. or flooding over due to pump pressure too high.
  11. and drip some vinegar on the french fries
  12. The USA version of the BMW 320i made in years 1977 thru 1983 had the filler for front bumper.
  13. Car sat for tens years is the reason. Remove the carb and all the removable jets tubes valves etc. Soak the carb body & top plate to clean out the internal passages, you can't see what in there.
  14. McGard is popular brand of that type of lock. or try Locking Lugnut Twist Socket Removal Kit -
  15. Hey 2002#3 Larry , were the bleeder screws removed when installing pistons. ?
