one more pic with both heat sinks on. I didn't feel comfortable trusting the adheasive to hold them in place, so I added a safety wire and hose clamp...

OK, new progress to report.... I recently changed front bumper to save weight, and increase airflow to the radiator. WOW what an improvement. I saved 380 lbs, and coolant temps are down 10 deg overall even in 111 deg heat today it handled it all without ever turning the fans on! Max coolant temps today were 196*.

It will shed more weight when I switch to coilover shocks, they only weigh 40lbs each shock and springs combined, and leaf springs, who knows how much they weigh??? It may get down to 7600 to 7800 lbs

OK so, I had lots ask me about how I plumbed my electric water pump, Simple, I blocked off the OEM block pump and used an "in line" pump. The problem was making the connections from lower radiator hose, to block intake. So, I used AN 16 and 20 fitting off the pump, and special ordered silicone hose that reduces from 1.75 down to 1.5, or 1.25 one straight, and one a 90 deg, and the pump just goes in between the lower radiator outlet to the block intake. Here's a good pic of what it looks like. The line with AN fittings is connected to the back side of the pump the other side is connected to the lower radiator outlet. This is a pretty confined space but careful planning got it to fit really nicely without forcing anything as you know with AN fittings if things don't line up it will not go together.
