Good job on the tranny tunnel and Congrats on the JP mag article. .... and I'm glad to see that my fork truck was in the article too
Yes, factory original radiator as best I can tell (brass) with a new core. I had the new core put in when I still had the original flathead motor. Haven't had problems with it since. Did have to move the radiator over to the passenger side of the crossmember though, to make room for my reverse steering box.went back through part of your build and didnt see it, did you use the stock Willys radiator?
I'm staying with a friend/coworker in Morgan Hill, probably won't have much time this trip since it's just a short weekend, but I'll more than likely be back up there for a few months on this job until July. Will definitely have to visit some of yall in the bay area I'll have the Willys with me then as well.I live in Campbell (next to SJ), send me a message when you get here. I want to check out the flattie again.
That's what I was thinking too! But it seems to have oil in it.... but that may not really be the culprit just based on that, since oil is everywhere As best I can tell by probing it with a piece of mig wire, it SEEMS to be a blind hole, but I can't get a good look at it even with a flashlight and mirror. Maybe I'll try jamming the camera up there in macro mode, see what I get. Or open up the PTO cover and see if I can feel around for a bolt hole. I want to open up the back cover anyway after the 800+ mile trip this weekend to check the torque on the drive gear nut, I don't trust the thin nyloc nut anymore...Seems like if it was a thru hole and you forgot to bolt it, you would have had a gusher leak since day one?
