Install the spring over the threaded bolt end and tighten the castle nut, leaving room to install the cotter pin. Take a pry bar, put it on the lower frame rail and compress the spring upward as far as you can, then shove something underneath it. It looks like you have the pieces in the wrong order. It will be about a year before I need it anyway. It is in decent shape. It was on the car when I bought it and cooled so well I just haven't bothered to change.
Sometimes the holes in the rad. I thought that didn't look right. Here's how I did mine. I have an electric fan only, mounted behind the radiator which pulls air through the radiator.

The mount needs to be strong, but flexible. If you look at the drawings posted by Howard you will notice that both show that there is a strap that comes from under the bottom of the bottom tank and normally its soldered onto the tank but what would work well for you at little cost would be to make a single metal strap to go under and up each side or 2 straps on one each side. . The infamous thin core radiator of 1926-1927 In 1926 and 1927 Ford engineers introduced a radiator with three rows of offset tubes. Run Time: 38 min, 10 sec. While on a test run or 10 I noticed the top of the radiator moves from side to side, it looks like about an inch either way but its most likely half that and I don't want to damage my new core. While I'm among some seasoned hands this morning, can anyone geive me some simple tips about T-bucket radiator mounting? Add a Message This is a private posting area.
Look at the illustration that Dan posted. Some of these sets have two sizes of springs. Now if you have enough threads left on the stud to put your last nut on. Take a look at the pictures and tell me if you have any ideas. Here's how I did mine. Only registered users and moderators may post messages here.
Lay your long nut in the bottom of the frame. Types of transmission bands and linings available; inspecting and restoring bands; adjusting bands; tips and tools needed. He is going to use the spring bolts, but I have always just used a fat rubber fender washer under each side between the radiator and frame. In addition, he shows what should be done to make that T ready for durable touring. Anyway I got my little set of 1917-25 mounting hardware today but I can't find any reference photos of how exactly it all goes together.
Includes handy, easy-to-make tools and tips. In addition, our agreements with some manufacturers prohibit us from discounting certain parts so they are not included in our promotions. Overthrowing small countrys, Stirring the pot, Revolutions organized, Coups started, Sniffing alky and nitro fumes, fixing that damn blower. Let the car do its work, your only the pilot, hanging on for dear life. The radiator with a built in trans cooler, only problem with them is you can only get the trans fluid as cool as the radiators temp, a seperate trans cooler is better.

Starting safety as well as driving tips. I thought I was safe with a 23 model year but maybe it's an early one before the change? Drivers job is to stop the car, to take off with the fastest reaction time, and to keep it under control- in your lane. And what about the need for colling to the transmission? Then, a shell goes over that.
That cap holds your shell on. Alum is soft, yet strong, fit is everything. In the pictures there is currently only one bolt per side and some clamps holding it all in place. Make em yourself out of neoprene with a hole saw. It will probably help with the flexing as well. All orders are subject to verification. How do you allow some degree of vibration and movement that won't shake it to death? I've been told that support across the core was added to keep the spring mounted radiator from flexing sideways and ripping the core out of the lower tank.
