Re: 1935 Ford truck radiator fan

That would be way too low. Someone has made this switch before and must know what works best. I assume an electric fan and shroud is the way to go.

Re: Rearend Leak

Maybe I just got lucky, but I hand filed the trumpets flat where they mate up to the banjo housing,and 11 years and many miles later no leaks. Whatever you do use original bolts without lock washers.

Re: Bendix Spring Snapped...Normal?
