I can get a fresh one for you but it won’t be until this weekend, for now if you look back at post 58 you can see the crossmember and the hose passes through it, when it exits the other side it hugs the fuel tank opening. You can see the hole cut for the return side where I hadn’t plumbed that hose yet. I kind of borrowed the idea from the “RSR LS conversion” thread. Page 10 you can see he has the coolant lines route through the crossmember! I used a 1.5” hole saw. And sanded the bore smooth to play nice with the hose.

Vacantsky, I see the hole now. If you do get a chance to photo the crossmember and the and how it hugs the fuel tank and goes from there to the radiator. Look great. I really like where you mounted the water pump. Out of the way! You used a regular 1.5" metal hole saw blade? or a stepped dril bit?
Thanks,
Yan

Nice project.

First time I've seen someone using the Momo wheels, they look great. Wish they did a 5-spoke in 15 or 16 inch.

Pedal cluster modification, it took me weeks and weeks to refurbish mine, I cannot even imagine trying to modify one.

Kudos.

Thanks! I love these wheels, looks like I got one of the last “custom” sets as Momo offers these in off the shelf sizes (With only two color options now) for certain applications, the 911 ones would be 17x8/9.5 only. I know they made a 1 off 5 spoke set for a Rod Emory 356 build, and they look great! Personally I love the 6 spoke over the traditional 5.

The pedal wasn’t too bad, it was a tougher decision to make but I think it will pay off in the long run with the NLA 930 part!

Yan, this took longer than I said so I apologize but here is the picture of the coolant hoses up front. No pic to the radiator as it is removed so I can close up the hole but you can see where they pass to get there. Bought some sheet metal this week so hopefully will have this closed up soon. I’ve been busy rebuilding brake lines and addressing the brakes. Rabbit holes that slow me down as per usual! To cut the holes I used a 1.5” hole saw after drilling a pilot hole. Where they cross over near the fwd control arm bushings I’ll use one more adel clamp per side to hold them in place

Looks great and I really appreciate the photo because it shows exactly what a good build with the radiator in the front needs. Did you use one length hose for each side or did you have some cuts where it goes through the cross beam with silicone angled hoses? You used one and a half inch hose the whole way or inch and a quarter in each direction? Thanks again for the photo Perfect!

No problem! I’m keen to document as much swap specific stuff I did as possible or take specific photos so anyone else in the future can have a thread to bounce ideas out of, or just copy! Could save someone some time!

The hose is 1-1/4” ID to and from (I believe that’s how both renegade & toy-jet do it too) and it’s pretty much one piece per side, the only cuts are to accommodate a couple T fittings for the expansion tank lines, the water pump, and of course a thermostat (I’m using a mezeir 170)

Here are a couple more pics to show the rest of the coolant system, I used a formed 45 off the right side of the engine just because the other hose would have kinked a little more than I would have liked to get the angle I desired. It shows a T fitting between the engine and water pump (hidden by the expansion tank). The steam port will be connected to the small inlet on top of the tank.



The second picture is my left rear wheel well showing the thermostat housing and the second T that links to the expansion tank. (The 3/8 line jumps over the top of the transmission to the tank)



The third pic is the T fittings I am using (from a VW pt# 1C0121087E) and are 1-1/4” OD in/out with a 3/8” OD T for the lines to run to the expansion tank. The C5 corvette tank has two lines coming out of it, otherwise 1 T would have been fine. If anyone else does something similar with a 2 port expansion tank make sure your second T is AFTER the thermostat so the tank isn’t used as a bypass while the Thermostat is closed. I don’t think it would be a problem, but I didn’t want to find out either. For now I have “no bypass” but I drilled two 1/4” holes in my thermostat to allow coolant to pass through and not create hot spots in the engine while it warms up, or dead head the pump.



Pro(?) tip, USE AMAZON PRIME! If I can find a part I want to try out, but am unsure of it’s compatibility and it’s available on prime that’s how I buy it. Even if it’s cheaper elsewhere, the return policy is incredible: no questions asked. If you don’t want it start the return and drop it off with UPS. Done. Refunded. I’ve had so many things in and out of the garage through prime to help figure things out, it’s been a life saver!
