Joe- not quite sure what your concern is, but if how to mount it with the mounting kit, then this may help. The image came from the forum at some point in the past.

Great picture John.

Some time ago I asked about the correct finish of the thimble and cap which are zinc plated here. The concensus was that they were raven finished.

This is what I do. I put the the flat nut on the bottom with the cotter pin in and the springs and thimbles on and then tighten down everything (without the radiator). When I get the spring under the frame member compressed, I put a block of wood or metal between the end of the stud and the bottom frame rail. Then unscrew the top nut. This will keep the bottom spring compressed and the stud sticking up high enough to get the nut on after you place the radiator. Then when you get the top nut on, you can take out the block of wood under the stud. I find this the easiest way to get things together.
