Why are you welding the shroud air vanes in place (open) rather than simply installing the actuator struts and a thermostat? It will make your engine warm up faster.
Not criticizing, just curious...Plus, you wouldn't need a welder. Jus, sayin'
Other than that, WOW! You're getting a whole lot of stuff done!!
Good Morning Gordon.
That's actually a great question. I'm welding them open because when the previous owner of this shroud widened it for the type four cooler the actuator arm/rod no longer fits without hitting the wider exit for the doghouse. I could leave them out all together, however Anthony strongly suggested using them and welding them 'open'.
Have any of you intrepid members mounted your cooler in the fender well?
