Is that a direct fit or a universal fit radiator? It will work fine, as long as there is clearance you will be good to go.

Bed is done and ready to install.

There is always a debate but I run full time vacuum for the timing advance. I always got better throttle response and mileage using it so you may want to give it a try. I never ran anything smaller...

I would not angle the front crossmember, the rear being a little higher is not going to be that big of a deal. Anyone remember the 1980s and jacking up the rear of the car to fit bigger tires? I did...
