I'll be putting a 1926 engine in my 14. Do I need to change the timing cover to adapt the original type riveted fan or will the 1926 fan housing clear the radiator? Thank you in advance! Tim Franko

You have to use the 14 fan. The 26 timing cover may not have the boss for the adjusting bolt if it is a late cover. There is also a clearance issue with the starter boss and the firewall bracket, you can't get to the upper outside bolt with the bracket in place. The floor board will also have to be change due to the pedal spacing.

1926 pedals, earlier floor boards.

The '26 fan is mounted on the water outlet - that is directed towards the high radiator, not towards a low brass radiator, so you'll need another outlet on the head - and thus you'll need another fan bracket too.

(If you really need a fan.. I drive without, but I never participate in parades and traffic rarely stands still for more than a minute where I'm driving )

Thank you Steve! I never even thought about the floor board issue. That's why this forum is so helpful.

Any's correct IF you use the 26-27 transmission, but if you use a 26-27 block with a 25 or earlier transmission, pedal spacing and floorboards, will not be affected.

Why ??

The wider 1926-27 brake drum requires the 1926-27 transmission cover to correctly align the brake band.

You may also need the later oil pan to use the longer bolts on the back plate/brake drum.

The large low band pedal may interfere with your hand brake.
