since the alfa section is DEAD, and this is the only remaining active part of the forum, I thought I might continue here Happy

first part:
http://www.vwkd.co.uk/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4019&sid=3c9245c5eea2a648232369b87d07b26e

Now:
I just started on the rad setup. I had a vanagon rad laying around with shroud, and a friend gave me a delco messerschmidt Fan he wasn't using, so I merged all that into this:



I had to get rid of one of the screws because it was rubbing the chassis rails.

I think this rad most probably will work because it was made to cool an engine that was actually in the back of a bus, instead of the front of a light car. It fits tight between the chassis rails, and I am putting it in an angle with a scoop. The fan will be on top sucking air if needed.
comments always welcome since it is my first conversion!
regards,
Hans

Most missed it I guess...haha. Like I said, the alfa section is dead, for a good reason probably. Not the most reliable those spagettiboxers...

Working on my t3 brick for MOT at this moment, but I'll be back to it soon!
regards,
Hans

Finished the rad setup this weekend, just have to mount the expansion tank.
I used aluminium pipes that I have from all the beachflags that I use for the surfschool in summer. The flags themselves usually last for a couple of weeks, but the poles are still good, since I am the kind of guy that has trouble throwing stuff away, I had plenty of those left!
I built a tool to make "flanges" to the poles, same tool as almost everybody on this forum has made, thanks!
tool:


result:



all the rubbes hoses are either from an alfa 147 or from a t25 vw. Had a whole pile of those, so plenty of possibilities:


I used the thermoswitch out of the alfa rad, had the same size and thread.


My friend Remco's siggies where under his doka so we pushed it over....

progress....

I rebuilt the original 32 weber carb and intake manifold, and put that back on:



Found a spot for the header tank, the tank is out of a 146 alfa, and is easy to fill through the top hatch:







I still can't believe the amount of space there is left with this engine in the back... so easy to work on!

Hi Hans
Anymore progress with your conversion?
I've a 1.5 sud engine I want to put into the back of my bay. Can you show me any photos of your engine support? Did you use alfa engine mounts?
Thanks,
Steve
