Thanks, I have some new pics I need to get up here.

I ended up calling Ballistic to check on my order after I got off the phone with you. Most of my order will be at my house middle of next week.

Just got the new summit radiator, Derale dual fans, fan thermostats, and a brake distribution/adjustable proportioning valve.

Now I just need to get motivated to get the cage done and can start installing these new beauty's. Not sure what it is but new bling helps motivate me to work out in the cold.

You are welcome, I used one of these radiators on my truck last year when it had the 302 in it and they work great. As long as the core was clean i never had temp. issues. On top of that the quality is very good, not sure what would make a more expensive radiator better since these from Summit are more than adequate.

Default Update

After measuring and mocking up the front 3 link and steering I had some major clearance issues with the stock front cross member in the frame. I also was stuck as to how I would box in the front of the frame to add strength to allow me to attach my engine roll cage and shock hoops.

Here is the answer:











The tube is 4x5" 3/16"wall and the plates are 1/4. This will give me plenty of clearance for the front diff and also be a good platform for building tube work off of.
