Little more progress again.
Denso 40 amp alternator mounted.
4855 articulation 015.jpg

JD radiator with electric fan mounted. Have not checked the part # yet but the guy at the radiator shop thought it was off a Gator? $100.00:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana: fan works
4855 articulation 017.jpg

Now the hood has to go 2" forward.
4855 articulation 022.jpg
Going to pickup some 1 1/8" hose and pipe to do the cooling system plumbing tonight.
I will also put the hood back on tonight to get a feel of what that 2" will look like added to the front end.
Just do not want to end up with something that looks like the IH Anteater.
I really think we are OK yet. That 2' will let me put the operator platform that much forward as well.

Ducky, that radiator is so thick...must be at least a 2 core? You won't have any trouble keeping it cool!

Have a long way to go for Video yet.
Will supply video of Beer Chugging in the interim.

Thanks again to all for the compliments on this project.

Doug, your EV is no back seat tractor either.
You are the type of guys that inspire the rest of us.
Thanks to you and all that make this site great for your support.:yelclap:
