Wow! Those brackets, pulley and fan belt add over $200 to the price of an alternator?

Bob, why can't you use a stock fan with the aluminum radiator? Just curious. Dave

I have a close friend that is using the aluminum radiator and Bob as you say adapted it to fit the T by moving the intake and outlet to match the Model T configuration. He drives the fire out of it and uses the stock fan system with no problems. So is your 17 engine one that does not have the removable casting at the back of the timing gear casting or the one that doesn't?

David John my top tank is thinner front to back then my old one and when I made my neck and took have it welded I forgot the differance and made clearances real tight
I made a water neck spacer in between the outlet and head this also gave me a place add my temp sensor for temp gauge as well as a thermo switch to run the fan as needed
