You shouldn't have to install a Pusher fan unless you are looking for some boost
(like a super charger) ... as long as you size the pipe pretty well (3" or so)
... the new vehicles are pulling air through some pretty small holes, so I don't
think you'll have much problem getting 650cfm ...

Well folks, shes in. And works great. Exhaust would NOT fit, so it goes
into the shop tomorrow. Well lets see. Where did I leave off? Oh yeah,
tranny was in, everything fit nicely. Well after that, we had to move the
tranny cross member forward about 3/4 of an inch, I left it the same height
do to floor clearance problems. Then I hung the drive shafts, I got the
forward shaft from an F-150, but it was 3/4 to short for the carrier bolts to
line up. I solved this by drilling new holes. This is only temporary, as I
dont have as much spline contact as Id like to have. The old rear shaft was
put back in. The clutch pedal would have been easy, but I didnt know how it
went together. I wont tell you the hell I went through, but, if you do this,
the pin that holds the brake pedal comes out, and the clutch pedal goes in
its place. bing bang boom. I got the steering column from a parts truck we
have, and swapped the shafts, as it was from a manual steer, and it was too
long for my power steering box. The floor pan and shift boot also came from
the same truck, that was a direct bolt in. The clutch linkage came from a
bronco, the piece the bolts to the bellhousing, the Z bar, and the braket
that bolts to the frame. I was surprised to find the bolts that hold the
bracket to the frame were already in place, just backed em out, and bolted
the bracket up. Also, the carpet had a pattern on the back for cutting the
hole, so it was an easy do. I dont think Ive left anything out. But Im
tired as an old Chevy, and really need to get home. IF any of you have any
questions, feel free to ask. I'll be doing that tech article soon.
