  1. That is what I have resorted to doing. It has certainly been a challenge but I will get get there...eventually. Thanks
  2. I have a '40 and after pulling those spark plug wires, I am not sure I want to do that again!
  3. I have the spark plug wires in through the tube where they should be. That in itself was a chore. What I am referring to is the harness wires that run to the generator, coil, and the temperature gauge. That's were I am seem to be out of room.
  4. I have my spark plug wires run through the tubes and properly connected to the distributor caps. Now I have to get that thick set of engine wires through the left spark plug tube and out the proper holes and its tight in there. Any suggestions on this feat would be most appreciated. Thanks
  5. Thanks for all of the advice on this. The radiator is in, fan belt, on, fan re-installed and hoses secured!
  6. Thanks for the reply. I located the bolts that you referred to. Actually, I had messed with them during the process of trying to figure this out, but thought that they were related to the damper and not the fan. I have removed the 3 bolts and then roughly pulled the fan off. Once the bolts were off, it only took me 3 minutes to remove the fan blades. Thank you. Next up is the install. I'll keep you posted.
  7. I wonder if I can get a bit of advice. I have a '40 LC and I have recently re-installed the v-12 engine. Now I am trying to fit the radiator in place and I find that I do not have enough clearance when bringing it in over the top of the engine. The fan blades are in the way. I am not sure if I remove the fan blades, that there will be enough room in there to re-install them after the radiator is installed. To add to my bewilderment, I re-installed the fan blades after repainting them about 6 years ago while the engine was on a stand and I can not remember how I did it....that must have something to do with my hair getting whiter. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
