Bottom rad mounts:


One of the top radiator mounts, after I welded a bolt in and ground the head off. The "stud" will be the top mounting for the shroud:


You can see the pair if you look close in this pic:



I dunno where or what that fan is from - it was butchered up and placed in front of the original fan - GMOTOX said his buddy liked to cruise the truck and added it to keep it from overheating during the Dream Cruise.

It looks like an OEM fan (warning decal) but I can't find any p/n on it anywhere - though, it looks like a Ford connector. Here's a lightened photo that shows where the fan was at:


Funny thing is, it "pulls", so with the way it was wired up, it was fighting the flow of the fan on the engine.

One more thing - I just bought this to help me update the wiring to modern specs:
