I finished up the new lower radiator hose for Pepe today. I have to cut a hose and turn the bottom 90 degrees to make it fit. This involved adding an inner aluminum tube and some additional clamps. I have never had to do this before but I couldn’t find anything that would fit as is.
After the installation, I tested for leaks and found a couple that require more attention. I don’t want the lower radiator hose to leak as that is the upside of the water intake to the engine. I will have to take it back off the engine, add some clamp load and maybe some Right Stuff.
I also have the fuel filters for both tanks apart for replacing the filter cartridge. No small job due to the location of the filters on the inner frame channel . I need to have them back together and the leak stopped before our next Tuesday’s tour.
I am featuring the Fat Girls (46-48 Fords) today and some Shoebox convertibles (49-51 Fords) I like these cars for their style and comfort in going down the highway .
