Clocked the thermostat housing so my radiator hose no longer needs trimmed. I just had to file the holes a bit with a 1/4” angle grinder with a small carbide burr. The new Tim hoses will be here Monday.

I heard Tim does radiator hoses. Is that what you are talking about. Different color options.

I think it’s just a stock rad hose with fish net on it 🤷🏻‍♂️ I’ll let you know Monday when it gets here. Also he’s sending me a coolant crossover mod and new heater hoses that work with the crossover. So I’ll have my original Tim heater hoses for sale.

the JPS midplate makes the radiator hose unable to go all the way onto the thermostat housing. So we clock the housing slightly for clearance.

Mr David Boyer @dboyer made me these killer poly motor mounts.

The material is a shore hardness 80A High Performance Polyurethane liquid. He used a 304 Stainless bushing to avoid the bolt getting rusted in them. It Completely replaces the the stock 60 shore hardness rubber bushing that is made for comfort not high performance. They make a 90 durameter liquid, but it is pretty close to a solid engine mount.

Kenny, where did you get the fitting that screws into the left side of the intake?
I got the kit from Tim. I had to cut about 3 threads off that were sticking out the bottom
