Finally sat down and assembled my Performer AVS Off Road 800 CFM carb today. Rejetted a little leaner by one size on the primaries and left the secondaries stock jetting. New pump, jets, rods and kit.

Worked a little on prepping my new radiator, had a new copper 4 core big tank left over from my box truck. The truck it was intended for had wider brackets which had to be trimmed and new mounting holes drilled.

Made mounts to clear the air conditioning condenser and give it some breathing room.

Cut the aluminum 6001 sheet for the fan, the fan I had left over from my Jeep days. It's a 16" Flexalight 2000 CFM if I remember right.

How much did the new radiator run you?

Radiator mounted and cable all clamped down, ready for the hoses and shroud.



BTW many might be wondering why I mounted the radiator so far out? Well I moved the radiator 2" out for more room for coolers, later plans include a fan powered engine cooler, trans cooler and I need to leave room for a condenser too. I would like to say it all worked out as planned but the frame rail got in the way so I had to cut the bottom corners off the shroud to clear the frame rail.
