You must work for Mr.Gasket in sales because now I want one

I think any tool that gives you another opinion or angle on issues is worth it. It would also remind short memory people to not twist the cap because the gauge would tell you how quickly your skin would peel off if you open it.

I would like to see a picture or a blue print of the plate motor mounts with the slider slots. Also I'm planning on using a small condenser coil running off my heater hoses to have auxiliary cooling. But my build is a straight off road truck in progress. The tech section is vague besides 7" long plates and 1/4 thick.

Hi, we didn't make a slider, we measured up 1 1/2 inches and made a hole, then copied the plate on the next one. I will take a pic of the plate we used, then we added a bit more beef to the area where it bolts to the front of the motor. He is going to make another set for his 351W build, using the same plates... i will get a picture of what he does.

JAMMAN....

I went to a performance store today to order my fan for the build. the fellow there said they get many of these thermostat caps returned... he said they fog up or leak a bit with the seals... not sure if I will try one or not... this is why i was asking in here if any one uses one and how they like it before i venture into dropping 40 bucks on one.

I am loving the fitment of this rad....

cheers

mounted in the rad last night. there is 3 inches room in between the water pump and the rad. the 2 inch fan is on order and I will be getting a piece of thin gauge stainless steel to make the shroud out of and mount the fan to that. ... cheers and will post up pics as this gets finished.

I bought one from Summit back in November. I thought is was pretty cool.
It was SUPER hard to install, which i thought was weird. It was like it was built for a specific radiator and different from mine. I did finally get it on though. Then, a couple weeks ago it started leaking. I had to take it off and put an old crappy one back on. I wouldn't buy again.

Hi Chris, Welcome to the TRS and thanks for the reply. Yes same thing I had heard about them from a high perf parts place. these seem to leak and cause more troubles than they are worth. the store doesn't even carry them anymore for the amount they get returned the sales guy said it wasn't worth the effort.

too bad though, great idea having the dial there and they do look neat.

cheers
