  1. So I ended up making a change of plans. I ended up giving my brother the cooler that I had for his '60 Thunderbird since he is going to be putting a C6 into it. And ended up grabbing a B&M cooler instead. But it worked out much nicer in terms of mounting and Im really happy with the final result. It was easier to do braided lines to this, although what I ended up doing was using the factory lines most of the way to the front and then converted them to AN lines. Car is almost fully back to gether. A couple last things with the new radiator and she will be ready for the streets.

  2. Point taken. Maybe it's just me, but I like to see correct (but not necessarily concours) parts where possible in the engine bay. It seem often we are dealing with other peoples "fixes" that are not always appropriate. I had no intention of being offensive.

  3. After a little more moving the trans jack and fine tuning, everything lined up and the trans is now installed. Thanks everyone for your advice and assistance on this. Tom

  4. These are the JRi (single adjustable) that came with my Maier MOD1 suspension. I still need to test drive the car but from what I hear this is a very high quality brand. Seen here with the Hyperco spring and the new UCA.

  6. My Hayden cooler came with the fittings just had to get barbed fittings to go on the hard line near the radiator support. The line that came on my car had a fitting there and I went rubber line to the cooler and from cooler back to hard line to transmission. My parts house has an assortment of the fittings on the wall and they let me go back and find what I need. One of the best changes you can do for your automatic car. Get the heat out of the radiator from the transmission and actually get way cooler fluid to the transmission using the stand alone cooler. I made two brackets that I was able to use existing fasteners in the radiator support and center grill support so I did not add any holes. I just put a manual switch for the fan. I have a cooler about twice the size of this one for the Q code auto vert build. Heat is the enemy of every engine and especially transmissions. Notice the clamps on the hoses are the fuel injection type and smooth so you do not have those ugly geared clamps that ruin a hose. No really big pressure there just flowing through the cooler and back to transmission.
