Re: 65-70 Mustang tank in a Granada?

Thanks DanH!

Another option I had in mind was to fab up a support frame out of 1" square tubing, purchase a 22gal mustang tank, cut the top half off and weld in a wide sheet between the two halves.

Re: Got This Doohickey as a Gift - How to Wire it?

Re: Water Pump - RTV Instead of Gasket

I checked the impeller on the shop bench top, and it doesn't bind.

So I presume, in accordance with your replies, that I should be fine with RTV?

Water Pump - RTV Instead of Gasket

So, I ripped both my water pump gaskets and I was wondering if I could use RTV only instead of gaskets?
If so, which RTV would be best?

B&M C4 Transpak

I'm going to install the B&M Transpak into my C4 this week using the Hi-Performance Street option and I was wondering if there is anything I should look out for?

Re: Trans Cooler Install Q's

And now for my last question regarding this topic, does a deep aluminum trans pan really help that much for cooling or is it more for the added oil capacity?
