AC? That looks like a big block heater box cover.

 I am so curious why the 5-blade fan layout looks the way it does. Logic would make me think the blades should be evenly spaced around the hub.

Paragon sells the silver coated cork gaskets. You can probably take a set of cork gaskets and spray silver engine enamel on the exposed tabs for the effect.

 Buy a bag of each.....it would look just as 'correct' mixed as it would not mixed.

I came across this mini GPS tracker today. Looks interesting.

 I wound up buying the Apeman C450A camera for $43.00 on Amazon.
 I was surprised how small (3 1/4" x 1 3/4") and light this is and the 1920x1080 resolution looks great even when I view the video on a large screen.

If you don't have a 67 fan then I can take a picture of mine.

Never seen one. But the McGiver in me thinks an old starter drive, a bracket to bolt to the starter mount, and a nut welded on to be turned with a 1/2 rachet?
Ya know.....I was thinking along those same lines after Bryon's joke.
I have a junk starter and a MIG welder I can use.  :)

 I have the special socket that slips over the crank snout (when no damper is mounted) to turn the engine by hand, but I want to be able to turn the engine using the flywheel with the bell housing mounted.

Garage Talk / Is there an offset flywheel turning tool?
« on: October 23, 2018, 03:46:23 PM »
Does anyone know if there exists an offset type of flywheel turning tool? I'm looking to get something that can turn the flywheel while the bell housing (manual transmission) is still installed. The tool I have requires it to be secured directly under the wheel and the bell housing will not allow that due to limited clearance.

Thanks!

 I check both my 67 L35's with original 4-blade 'production' fan and they look like the 'Ribs not thru centering' photo. Plus, they have the L35 specific 3857042 spacer and the center tip is flush with the fan when mounted even the 67 AIM shows the centers not connected.
Note; the fan does have the thin reinforcement spacer behind the pulley.
  What motor are you looking to put this on?

 I thought the Electric Limited single wire unit stated the resistor wire can remain.

 Interesting position of the steering wheel. And I see the tires are straight  ???

 Attached is a copy of J50/A3 from the 67 AIM.
Due to the file size limit of CRG I had to shrink the picture down a lot.
If you need a larger size then send me your email address in a PM.
