silicon works on turbos so it should work back there. just make sure to use good heavy duty clamps. and thanks for the bender info.

I just orderd two silicone 3" bump style couplings off of ebay, 12 bucks each. If they dont work, nbd. Stainless exhaust flexable couplings are upwards of 50 bucks.

I finished the cab mounts today, and started on the radiator mount. You might notice that the radiator is in a completely different position that pictured before. I think this will offer the best solution for air flow, and weight distribution.



The radiator is sitting on a 22* angle and will be captured by the 1/2" sch 40 Pipe structure shown in the pictures. Im still undecided on how I will build the hold down mechanism, but I should have it finished tomorrow once I decide which of the two mounting options I've come up with.

So what is the reason to mount it like that. Just wondering if there is a technical reason or space issues and how did you come up with 22* Just wondering for later refference

Ya, that is the angle that the radiator needs to be in order to clear bottom of the bed deck plate.

Here is the top clam in progress...

This is the start of a completely retarded mechanism to preload the radiator clamp. All thats really left is to cut the stud to length, and make a handle for it. The bung is 4140, the stud is 3/8" NC B7 all thread, and I machined the button out of 316L Stainless.

Wow, that's a 300% overkill setup for sure! Bling Bling I would have bent some sheetmetal and called it a day.

yup, It might make more sense when its complete, since there will be more tubes, and the clamp itself will be complete.

Incase you were wondering how this is going to work, and why Im doing it this way....

I dont have any room above the radiator, because of the bottom of the bed deck plate. The "clamp" allows me to move all the structure to the side of the radiator instead of above. To work the mechanism, you will pull up on the "handle" that sticks out to the left, then run the stud/button uptill it lightly pre-loads the radiator. Then you sinch down a little jam nut (havent made that yet).

I'm curious why you didn't weld a tab to the raditor and build some kind of attachment for that? The clamp design you built it cool, don't get me wrong, but IMO it seems like an overly complicated design just to hold the raditor in place.. IMO of course.

welding a simple tab to the radiator would have worked for a little while, but it would have eventually failed. This is overcomplicated, but thats the whole reason I did it. I like to try new things, think up new designs, then try them. If they fail, I build something else. Its just the way I am.

Anyway, under abusive applications you are better off to use some sort of clamp to hold the top and bottom of the radiator, IMO. Unless the radiator was designed with alternative mouting in mind.

You have something planned that'll hold the clamp from sliding down the tube and off the button? Interesting materials selection, scraps? Are you planning on leaving a hole in the bed plate for access to the radiator cap or refill your overflow tank? The cap looks really tight next to the front bar.

Come on Brook, you dont' actually think we beleive your building all this stuff do ya?.. You need to let that expert fabricator go. His family is probably worried sick about him.. It's ok to have ugly *** crap like the rest of us... We wont think any less of you

All that stuff your doing looks great.. Some of that stuff your making ya just have to sit back and stare for a little bit.

I made some little weld on "shoulders" to hold the clamp in position on the pipe it rotates about, but I left them at work today. The materials selection just made sense. The handle I made today was 2024 Alum, and the shoulders are A36.

The front bar your prolly looking at is just a piece of exhaust tubing that I use to refrence the height of the radiator cap in relation to the top of the bed rail tubes. Yes, there will be holes in the bed for both those items, but I havent decided exactly where I'm goign to put the overflow tank because I havent made or bought a good cap for it yet.

So you are able to build stuff for your buggy at work and the boss doesn't get pissed? Cool deal.

**** Brook...That's the coolest quick release I have ever seen for a radiator...

Keep this sh*t up and I'm going to have to hire you to build my next Drag Racer...

I love that you think outside the box...Never did like BOXES...
