Wow, the car looks nice!  Like the color and the wheel tire combo. 

I did the 3g (or was it 4g Hmmmmm) upgrade.  Works well with my electric fuel pump and fan even with a small crank pulley.  One of those simple upgrades that early Mustang owners who modify their cars should just take care of.

I also like your style on the radiator though I haven't cut my radiator mount yet.  I will no doubt do it in the future since it frees up a good amount of room between the water pump, fan, and radiator as well as providing you with a superior radiator design.

I have been meaning to do a writeup on the radiator mod. Most people aren't interested when I tell them they have to cut the radiator support. Anybody can restore a car, it takes a man to cut one up.

If real men cut their 65' radiator support, then what do they call someone who cuts out the whole support and installs the 67/68 support so that they can use the upgraded 24" wide radiator?  

I think that they should call me nuts . . . . . .     Loco

yeah I didnt want to cut the car up being it was 99% restored when we started

being that we will probably back half the car and put a cage in it its all probably a moot point but I didnt think the owner originally wanted to go that far with it. amazing what the sound of open headers will do  4 Eyed

65/6 radiator alteration by me.

Bottom mount is made from 1/2" square tube and 1.5"x1.5" angle seen here. They are attached with tech screws. Tech screws are a self tapping fine thread screw with a lot of bite. Not recommended for thin sheet metal.

On the bottom mount are rubber radiator mounts takem from a chevy truck in the junkyard. I don't recall what style.

The side mounts are made from 1" x 1/8" flat strap bent to take the rubber mount.

The radiator was purchased from Street or track. I got the model number from

here    http://www.universalpartsinc.com/detail.asp?part=CR9622  You can get the same radiator with a built in oil cooler. Cross flow is the way to go for this application.

My water pump set up is a serpentine. The rad support was cut to match the radiator opening. The system holds about 3 gallons plus or minus.
