    I got a question here, my core support i have to remake the lower part to hold the Rad. well i got it mocked up on the frame and striaght, and i took some measurments and used an angle finder and i found that the rad, sets with a backwards tilt of 15 degrees. this is with the frame level. at a 0 degree, core support is also at a 0 deg. also but the top hold downs are at 15 deg tilt and the hole opening for the air to pass through is at a 15 degree from this point. just trying to make sure this is correct i would like to get this fixed tomorrow before i have to go get a tumor cut out at the doctors tomorrow afternoon.

    What you describe is how mine fits. The top brackets control the angle of inclination.

    cool just wanted to know if i was correct on the measuring, because i have to fab everything below the core support mounts there is nothing there anymore, so i got to make the whole entire bottom mount, and these core suporrts are hard to find and if you find one the shipping is ungodly high, but it will be a few days before i get out there to work on in due to the stitches in my leg.

    I am encountering the same exact situation. But how did that tumor removal work out? Hope all is well. Allan

    5 years on, mins is rock solid. No more radiator falling out.
    Did you see the images in another thread of what I did?
