At link are pictures showing the kit installed using a Chevy HD water pump for in-line 6. It really fits nice centering the fan in the shroud with plenty of clearance with good fan position using the big fan for cooling. No modification of radiator or shroud required on a pre-1961 FFPW. These high rise kits are used on Model-A Fords when installing a SBC or any other vehicles, such as a FFPW when more fan clearance is required or the need to center the fan. At this point, I think I am beyond must of the issues you might expect, and from here on, it should be a bolt up assembly. The exhaust should be fairly easy to fabricate, hopefully, I'm home free from any problems require an alternative. The kit suggests using a 160 thermostat but I'm going to use a Robert Shaw 180 thermostat that allows more coolant to pass that a STD one and also has three holes modified by Speedway Motors that maintains cooling at high rpm, so I should be fine. The Speedway holes also allow air to escape when filling with coolant to eliminate the air pocket until the engine warms.
