The fan is mounted to a cut down '39 Ford two brush generator, attached in the stock position on the front of the intake manifold. This type of generator has ball bearings in lieu of bushings. A very common application in the mid '50's.


I like the way your engine looks with stock style air filters. It makes it look like as if it were an original factory set up.
