Beautiful car. Is it just the angle from which the photograph was taken or is the fanbelt out of line in the engine photo?

Good eye on the fan belt...I never noticed before ,but one blade is closer to the radiator. I guess i'll have to see what the problem is before it breaks and does alot of damage.Thank you for noticing.

Very nice car!

I just finished installing another engine in my coupe and the fan blades are a little closer at the bottom that the top. Also has a 4 blade fan. If you find answers to that situation, would like to know if proper or not.

I think you will be amazed just how quickly driving it becomes completely natural. In fact, you may catch yourself saying things like, 'Darn, I forgot I'm in an eighty-year-old car. I shouldn't take this corner that fast,' or 'Yikes, I should back off. This thing doesn't stop as fast as my anti-lock brake/traction-controlled/computer-complicated/overpriced/personality-deprived disappointment with plastic bumpers."
