Can you measure the depth of that setup from the core support to the nose of the fans? It looks great and the price is nice too.


~7.5 inches from the support to the back of the fan motors. I was able to center the water pump between the fans to gain clearance. My car must have had the smaller radiator as I had to drill holes and use 1/4in spacers between the support and radiator mount:







Looks familiar... LOL. Looking good. Mine was tight & I mounted my over flow bottle the same way.

Really? I haven't seen a mopar with one yet and GERST, RMS, and MF are pretty common. Do you have any pics so I can see what you're talking about?


I added one om my steering shaft also.I made mine with a nylon bushing. This is about the best picture I have of it. It now has a grease fitting also that I added.

Indy has rocker covers that are cast with a relief for more shock tower clearance. Mine are & it helps with a little more room. I don't have any better close up pictures. Hard to tell in this view.

I found this one while on the stand. If you look closely. The way it is cast the shock tower area is more tapered here.

If those are Indy heads,I believe they are 1/2" wider than the other hemi heads. I think that's why they put a relief in the valve covers.

Mine are INDY SR. Not sure about 6PKRTSE's (Stage V?).

I picked up a mini starter and terminal relocation stuff (via moparts search function). I can't believe I ran the old factory tank for so many years. These little things are tiny!



A little grinding on the posts for clearance. Look similar to your setups?







Headers are going to be tight! I don't know what kind of tape the machine shop used to cover the exhaust ports, but that stuff is sticky. I really wish I took it off and cleaned things up before installing the engine. A few pics of the CNC'ed exhaust ports:
