Nice work on this project. I will be doing something similar to your fan shroud for my truck. I will be mounting an electric fan (which I think is from a Ford Taurus) to my shroud. I will likely copy what you did for the form. Thanks for sharing.

Saw this rig in person today while picking up some parts that Andrew was holding onto for me. Real nice build and clean install.

Ok, I had some time over the past week or two to finish the shroud and just threw some silver engine enamel on it. I added a lip on the bottom and put a piece of cardboard across it so there is 1/8" gap so it hooks on the bottom of my radiator. I added another lip on the top and will use two 1/4-20" screws and unuts to bolt it to the top of the radiator. I will get some final pics once its in tomorrow.

Thumbs up

Wow, sounds like an awesome rig, I saw your sig from the heater stuff sell post and was like "I've got to see this!" lol. What's the whole rig look like?

And very nice job with the fiberglass shroud, I may end up doing that myself. We should have a note taking emoji...

Why the different crossover? Was it for clearance to fit the OBA? I'm looking for a different crossover because I have the stepvan version with a thermostat housing that points up and will interfere with the hood.

I was just planning on the more common truck style from a 6.2. Curious why you chose that one from a 6.5, single tstat.

I'll have to get some more pics of the whole truck uploaded and posted at some point. Just been real busy working 2 jobs for the time being.

I actually still have the 6.2 crossover with thermostat that I removed when I installed this one. I went with the 92-96 6.5 single tstat over the dual because of clearance issues with the db2 pump, but yes, it was for clearance for the York to fit where the factory AC compressor would. I didn't feel like having to rework the throttle cable around the tstat housing as well. It's coming together slowly but surely.

Next fix will be the front seal on my 205... don't know why that's leaking... leaving that for the spring...
