Hey Harry,

Can I ask you a big favor? Can you get me a few specs for what's right there in the pics? In inches if possible, yes I'm a lazy American ! I don't even own a metric tape measure.

1. Is that a std length reverse rotation water pump or the short ('94-'95 mustang) timing cover/water pump accessory drive?

2. Is that a March Performance Ultra pulley/bracket set?

3. How thick is your radiator/fan combo from the front mounting flat to the back of the electric motor?

4. Did you modify/cut out your radiator core bulge to make more space?

5. How thick is your timing cover, water pump setup, from the block face to the tip point of that water pump?

I'm building a '68 too and trying to figure out which water pump and serpentine system will work. Would like to keep a mechanical fuel pump in the timing cover if at all possible. I'd be glad to have as much clearance as you have...

Thanks for your reply Harry, tells me exactly what I need to know! Your Champ radiator and fan are 5" thick, and my Wizard cooling rad, shroud and dual fans are 6" thick, so that would put me smack on top of that foxbody full length water pump nose (about 8" from block to nose). Now I know I need another inch and a half....? So a '94-'95 mustang or late '90's Explorer timing cover and short water pump ARE in my future, that and an electric fuel pump.

Have you set up your elect fuel pump yet? What kind are you using and what fuel injection are you going to run?

What's going on with that top radiator hose? Are those splices in there just so you can butt hose 90's for your routing? On the one hand, all those splices scare me, however, it looks kinda clean and may reduce hose collapsing....?

Try a 94/95 mustang water pump.

Yes, I ordered a retrofit kit from fitech which drops into a stock oem tank, running a fitech 600hp kit.

For the 90 degree housing and to clear the alternator support bracket. I tried a fox hose. No good

Looks really good. I think you've picked an absolutely terrific colour.
