Re: Cheap fan shroud 1964 Galaxie guide
Oh trust me ..... I've done some very intense and deep searching on this ..... My rad has every factory air seal, and some. Plus, my shroud is totally air-tight against the rad --made up foam seals, hand-shaped the shroud so it follows the contours of the rad .....yada, yada, lol. Basically, all that is left is for me to just get another engine (and why is another thread I'll spare you from hearing, lol).
I was a Ford tech, parts manager and pretty much everything in a Ford back-shop for 25 yrs, so I hear ya about saving little tid-bits such as that starter drive story. I've had that one saved in my computer for years --just in case like you said, websites are sometimes hard to find, etc.
I did stuff like that for a living, because back in the '80s for example, Fords were much like they are today, and you needed to save and be privy to many "little fixes", which weren't readily published or widely known.
Anywho......I didn't mean to divert from your thread .....
Glad to hear there are other guys 'out there' striving to keep folks out of rabbit holes, way to go !
