    Not yet. I am thinking of using a clear coat instead. Then I don't have to mess with it again. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    My original Eaton fan clutch started leaking fluid and the reproduction fan clutch I put on was not cooling enough either. I need the constant direct drive fan cooling for the hot Orlando summers. I put on a 6-blade fan from Summit although I have read since then that you should only use an odd numbered blade fan (like a 7-blade). I don't notice any more noise but the engine runs much cooler!

    Sorry, I just saw your message. No it's not a bad idea. But the car will take longer to warm up. Also, the exhaust will sound funny without a crossover. You can add an 'H' pipe externally. Paul

    I dont know if I answered your message ior not sounds fine but if I had 6s I would try them first before buying 7s IMO
    BTW if you do what would want for your 6s I may have already sent this or answered it before

    That was an awesome way to start the day. I wonder how much $$ I'll spend on mine today, LOL. I have about 40K in mine so far and it is a very good driver with the exception of the 4.11 rear. Still pondering on what to do there. Statrted down one road and was disapponinted so I am back to square one.

    Feel free to reach me on my regular address Tim if you like [email protected]

    Jerry, Got your message, first time I've used this. My 65 is what is considered a restomod. The guy that did the work put the whole project on a thread on CF - http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show....php?t=1590723 . This link will tell you about what all was done and it has many pictures. Hopes this answers many of your questions. I'm now trying to decide what to do about the paint work it needs. It was painted orange in 1974 just before I bought it, it needs to be redone and the rest of the car put back together. Look at the link above then maybe I can answer any questions. Tim
