Default Re: Underhood carnage on my F-1

Got a replacement radiator this morning from an old truck salvage guy.
A few more bits and I can put her back together.....

Happened to me a few years ago as well. Had to have radiator re-cored and dent repair/repaint ride side hood. Good news is that the car runs much cooler now. While I had it all apart, I sent the water pumps to Skip, replaced the coil, etc.....

It's yours if you pick it up or arrange the shipping.
Thanks to you for these items.
With your shroud and fan I'm now back in business as soon as I pick
up my new "radiator" from being re-done locally.

I'll send you a PM.
I have a '48 radiator and maybe a shroud but it was a 6 and i put dual outlets for a V8. The radiator is good but useless to me as i have a loaded flathead for it. Someday!! If interested get back to me.

Just imagine hold many times the OEM used steel fan has flexed during it 60 or 70 years of rotating. Pretty scary considering it's only mild steel , heavy and can easily develop microscopic points of failure. Not a good idea to use one, IMO.

Default Re: carnage on my F-1..... FIXED

Thanks to fellow Ford Barn member Bums F-1 and a lucky find original radiator at Bob's F-100 Parts in Riverside CA, I'm up and running again.
I scored a 6 blade NOS fan off of eBay and bolted that on as well.
(B4Q-8600-A Which interestingly has both the Y-block bolt pattern and the 8 bolt flathead pattern)

I think you got screwed on your NOS six blade fan, it only has five blades.

Yeah. I can't count apparently
Only paid $30 for it, so I'm happy.

At $6 a blade, not too bad . . . now if it was a 32 fan, about $100 a blade! LOL

It's this type of generosity that makes our hobby and the Fordbarn so great to be part of.....what a nice offer!!
