I was able to find my engine number, with the help of a member. I have CSX945 as best as I can tell. I will try to get some information on from Shelby tomorrow.

On the driver side of the block towards the back there is a triangular flat spot.

I did some World Wide Web searching and I found the builder of my engine. I have a friend whoís Dad raced boats. My friend told me that his dad was friends with Joe and that he builds a really good engine. I canít wait to get my car done and get it on the dyno and see what I got. JBRE is the name of Joes shop. Joe has a pretty impressive resume including building Indy car engines and top fuel.

I was able to get the front clip separated. I didnít have any surprises during the process. I donít think I will be able to glass the backside so I will use a 3Ē wide strip of old body and use the 3m panel bond and glass the front. I will grind the front down until I hit the panel bond before I glass it. I will have some help later today so I can get it completely off. I didnít see anything else damaged but that could change once Iím able to get a few measurements.

Body is off and I have some birdcage that has a slight bow to it. Soon as I get my suspension stuff I will get it back on all 4ís. I will get it to the frame shop and get it back to perfect.

I have a few suspension parts coming and I can’t wait to get my car on all 4’s
I can’t say enough good things about Craig and how patient he has been. Jeff has been amazing also. So many knowledgeable people here that are willing to share.

While I’m waiting on parts from South Africa I have been cleaning up my car. I bought some purple power aluminum brightener and it worked amazing on my radiator. I ordered a thermostat gasket and I will be flushing my block and I will use Evans Waterless coolant. Last forever and it will not corrode my anything in my system. I have to ask myself what good is a forum that you can’t post pictures on!!! I tried to post 2 pics and it failed because it was over the limit and so I just tried to post 1 image and it failed!

Where there's a will there's way, Maxjeep I've had LOTs of issues with posting pictures too, till I found people here that could help. I've gone as far as sending them the pictures I wanted posted, and they were kind enough to do that for me (I reached out though a PM). The Software here is Old & slow, but it still works, looks like people here have tried to help, take them up on any advice they give you. You may want some advice on Evans Waterless coolant too, some members here, have tried it, with very different results, you may want to reach out to those people (EM-0785) has a lot of knowledge with Evans Waterless, not all good. Cheers Tom.

I had problems with rotation of pics and I still do but now it’s turned into can’t post pics. I have had Evans in my Hummer for 6 years and it has been working great. Temps are cool and zero pressure buildup in the system. I have enough leftover to convert it. I see some corrosion in my system and fluid that came out looked new.

I am flushing my engine coolant and I wanted to replace my thermostat while I have everything apart. My tank was showing some signs of rust but I was able to clean it up really nice. I wanted to put the same brand t-stat back in and I had trouble finding the right one. After a big fail at autozone looking for a Motorad stat I called motorad and the guy was really helpful. He had me get caliper’s and measure mine and he had me send him pics also. He was able to get me a perfect match. O’Rileys part number is 3478 and Napa is 191. Weird because one is a murry and other is Standered. I called him back and he said that Motorad makes them and it will be stamped Motorad. Sure enough it was and I would have never found it without his excellent customer support. I have a 180 stat and the engine builder drilled 2 holes in the flange opposite of each other and I would assume that 1 is for air but I don’t know what the 2nd is for.

Yes I doÖ I have a lot of stuff being fabricated, fixed and even stuff from South Africa. I need to get a few birdcage supports straightened out. Iím not ready for a body yet and I donít have room for it. I might have my friend fit the body if I have enough in the budget and heís in California and I would ship it to his shop rather than have to move it from here. You know what they say about moving, 2 moves is like 1 fire.Everything is costing more than what I expected and I had more damage than what I thought. Iím trying to sell one of my Roadkings so I can finish it.

Iím making some progress. Iím trying to align my 3 new brackets with my good one. I have the right distances between 3 of the 4 but I have too much pressure on the last one. The 2 inner brackets are perfect with the other side. Iím thinking that I need to remove 1/8Ē on both outer brackets. The degree and angle of the inner brackets are a perfect match.
