  1. Electric cooling fans

    Now if they would install an electric fan, and an alternator/generator pulling 5 or 6 amps to run the fan and see the HP saved.
  2. Explorer rear end

    In that case, the Ranger rear may be a better fit for your wheels.. I had to add 1inch or so, spacers to get my 235/75-15 "police wheels" out where I wanted them.
  3. Explorer rear end

    With the S10 rearend, you would need to use Chevy wheels. Suggest go with an Explorer or Jeep rear. I used a Ranger rear, and had to use 1 inch spacers.
  4. SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    With my Ranger 5 speed/218 setup/3.73, my first gear is almost like a "granny" gear, (great in Virginia though), and top gear is great over 40mph. Hope to try 3.55 soon. With a 2.7 rear, my top gear would not get much use, unless I was going downhill.....
  5. New Tachometer

    Look on Ebay, under marine tach. I use one with a white face, works good....
  6. Rear end swap

    I installed a Ranger rear in my 38 Coupe a few years ago. The Ranger rear is very narrow, so I used adapters to get the tires out to where I was happy with. I used an Explorer driveshaft.
  7. Draft tube

    The yellow tube is my draft tube, with a pcv valve that is attach to a vac line, works good..
  8. SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    My 98 XJ Jeep 2 wheel drive has a 3.55 rear, looks to be a good fit for my 37 or 38 Coupe.....
  9. SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    When I installed my 5 speed Ranger trans, I made an temp adapter to fit a temp driveshaft, to fit on my Plymouth rearend, Worked ok. I later changed to a Ranger rear, with a Explorer driveshaft..
  10. Overheating!! Time for a Rad flush

    I installed the glass on the hose that comes from the heater and goes to the water pump, easy to see the coolant.....
  11. Overheating!! Time for a Rad flush

    Found these on ebay a few years ago, about $10.......
  12. Overheating!! Time for a Rad flush

    Sight glass used on boilers..
  13. SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    This is when I installed the TK5 Ranger trans... Ranger trans, Explorer driveshaft, Ranger rearend..
  14. Overheating!! Time for a Rad flush

    I flushed my 38 rad with rain water many times one summer a few years ago. It had not run hot, but needed cleaning anyway. "Soft water", (rain water or from a water conditioner), makes a good cleaning agent. I only added coolant, no water. Several years now since, and the cooling system looks very good.....
  15. SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    Yes, I used an Explorer driveshaft, that bolted to the Ranger rear, working great...
