    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    Wow, this really got put on the BB. Well, after making the decision to get this car put away into storage, I realized that a # of things needed to be done first. Turns out that in that simple decision to get it moved out of the shop, and realizing that the E/C would need to get into paint first, we ended up getting back on this. lol

    So, in an attempt to keep myself up to date on pics ect, I figured I would update this thread.

    Pics coming tonight.............

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    When we left this project we were just getting ready to finish up the A/C lines and clearance everything accordingly, so we jumped on this a couple weeks ago and the lines are all figured out and just need to be sent in to be made up. We actually could have gotten away with using the factory Iroc R/T lines, but for the difference in cost for a more perfect factory looking fit, we decided to splurg!

    Next was mounting the AFCO rad. I was originally going to simply bolt it down to the cradle using the existing mounts and rubber isolators like I did on the Charger, my Brent had a much better idea.

    We sorted out the placement with the P/T in and then drilled a couple 1/8" holes straight through the center of each mounting tab and into the cradle below.

    We then opened up the holes in the rad mount to 1/4" and welded a 1/4" AL rod "stub" in both sides so that we could now attach the factory rubber isolators.

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    Then we took a couple of factory top rad mounting brkts and cut them down so that they were flat and retained the beveled center hole to accept the rubber isolators.

    We hole sawed the 1/8" holes in the bottom cradle just large enough that the mounting plates sat flush with the cradle and the beveled center ran inside the hole and we welded then to the cradle.

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    We dropped the rad in place and made up some simple AL plates to run up to the top of the cradle so that we could mount the whole unit using the factory mounts up top, using speed clips and bolts.

    This left a large gap between the top of the cradle and top of the rad, so I made a thick rubber block-off so that the air would be directed through the rad and not around the top.

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    Now my favorite fan for these builds has always been the 7 blade zero clearance mtr fan that comes on most 90 and up cars. They have a nice sized shroud and they seem to fit in tight spaces and cool like Mad!

    So it was no surprise (I have almost the same set-up on the Charger) that the 7 blade was going to fit like a glove. Although I ended up changing things a little on the mounting again.

    Where I made the shroud custom to mount to the tabs on the rad (Charger) I decided I wanted to keep with the "stock" apperance and function on this build. So I mounted some plates to the bottom of the cradle and used them to hold the factory lower clips that hold the bottom of the shroud. (these usually mount right to a factory rad)

    I then made some intricate little "boxes" and welded them to the upper cradle. These little boxes have slits cut in the bottoms so that the same clips that would hold the shroud to a factory rad will now hold the shroud to the upper cradle.

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    Had some minor trimming to do on the shroud itself and Bingo.........The finished product!

    Entire set-up comes apart just like the factory set-up would. In and out in minutes

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    I just wanted to point out that the 1990 fans were the only ones that I'm aware of that come with the pigtail. All the later ones have the electrical connector built into the motor assembly, so you've have to source a plug. I, too, run this fan on everything! It just works so well!!

    Re: TIII Shelby Charger

    Bringing this one BFtD!

    Along with the Charger and several other projects, this one got shelved and the years just kept going by. Got a few things done a little here and a little there, but so slow trying to get back to something part time.

    I knew l needed a more concerted effort if it was ever to get finished. Knew l had to find a way to “Turn back the clock” and get back that Passion and frame of mind l had 10 years ago! But is that possible……?

    Watch Rocky, then listen to Eye of the Tiger as you open a drawer of your tool box. Consider the clock turned back.
