 If I recall, they don't attach at all.  There's some felt weatherstripping
in there just to hold moisture and mud, and rot out the outside panel.  You
don't see it until it's too late because of the interior panels.

Subject: Old radiator w/newer engine

I don't want to totally disagree, but I have been driving my '48 with a
289/auto and the original flathead V8 radiator for years without any
problems.  I do have a trans. cooler.  I just think that the old style
radiator is so cool looking, it's a shame to take it out if you don't have.

I was looking and reproducing some parts that aren't already done and I
was wondering if anyone knew anything about this.  I imagine that I
would need to have a license from Ford to do this.  Any help or leads
would be appreciated.

Find Ford's 800 number on their page, then ask for the number to
"Corporate Identity."  Be prepared to shell out big bucks.

Randy;
     I installed a 6V Autopulse electric pump prior to the mechanical pump
& used it only to prime for starting purposes & as a back up pump.
The stock pump sucked through it no problems & this was on a 3/4 race twin
carb motor. Evaporation is the main cause of the problem.

I agree, an original radiator in good condition is fine IF you've got
the right thermostats. A shroud is a must. I prefer to use electric fans or
both!.
The original caps were 4lb from 41 0n.
If the tanks are soldered on correctly with lots of solder filler for
strength  & not the minimum amount that many shops use you'll have a
radiator capable of handling a 7lb cap no problem.
For every lb increase in pressure the boiling point is raised 3o from memory,
so its worth making sure those tanks are well soldered.

I'm wondering what one does with the other two hose openings on rad when
you use newer engine. Solder them shut ? remove snouts first? short hose
w/ugly plug?
Do you have to use opposite side outlets so rad don't clog up on one side?

 Has anyone ever had a problem with the fuel pump arm sliding off the front
of the lobe? I have had 2 pumps where the arm has came off the lobe. I
haven't pulled anything apart yet but did look up there with a mirror and
things LOOK fine. One pump I ran for about 500 miles and the other 20 min.
The third pump on it know has lasted about 100 miles but I don't trust it.
