clar2001...I made my own version of the front strut brace based on the "production" ones that are out there, but with the design altered a little to hopefully give a better result.
The hose that "blew" was the same as the bottom one. A convoluted steel hose. It actually 'slipped' off the radiator neck rather than blowing as such. With the way the electric fan sender unit mounts to the upper rad. neck it's difficult to make this new hose stay in place tho I'm working on it.
Guys didn't I tell you Brutus was a great fabricator? I am quit familiar with his skills and they impress me alot.
He inspired me to build a spreader bar also this winter and you should see his 6 link rear suspension.
But he does drive on the wrong side of the road:laughing: :laughing:
Nice engine compartment Brutus and nice undercarriage. The ramps are new to me.
