A clean engine is one that is taken care of, and taken pride in.

Go ahead and bash me about the coil cover, and potential overheating. If I keep it, I'm going to run the unused emissions tap on my doghouse to blow some air in there, and drill out holes along the bottom. If I fry my coil, I have been warned (and I do carry a spare).

I'm going to put the oil bath back, as well. Need to strip and paint it. I just ran out of the grey. BTW, it's supposed to be Hammertone finish by rustoleum, but kind of looks more like orange peel. Oh well, better than what I started with.




Shocked is it just me or does that fan belt look un-healthyly loose?

mite want to check that. Wink

What, one that has a neat looking shroud that doesn't cool as well as the stock one? Looks can be deceiving.

Thanks guys for the compliments & the drool! Cool

jbrandt01, Some people like the look and good cooling rather than an ugly fan shroud and great cooling. I take it by that comment, you are with the Raby Clan? Its all good though.

I have another car with better cooling too.
