Dean is this car going to be driven daily too or just for racing?

The reason I asked, I contacted (years ago) a company (sorry cannot recall their name) who makes and sells EWPs of all kinds and they steered me away from using their EWP on my Ultravan for a daily driver.

BTW - Thanks for that link. I'm going to read more...

Tony, this car will not be a daily driver nor a race car...just a vairy nice car for cruise-ins, shows and fun driving.

I believe that this Davies Craig EWP will be more than adequate for the upgraded 215 engine.

Thanks for the questions and feedback!

Installed the lower aluminum tubing, silicone hoses, clamps and the Davies Craig EWP (electric water pump).

Used the cut-off silicone hose ends to prevent chafing of the tubing against the tunnel...

There is a rubber hose ring around the hole in the floor pan under the back seat and rubber glued to the underside between the pump body and the metal to sound dampen the pump while in operation.

There is a stainless U-bolt with a rubber hose insulator around the outlet neck that secures the pump to the body.

Fashioned, powder-coated and installed a "stone guard/skidplate" to protect the electric water pump

Dean,

Are you running a one speed or two speed cooling fan?

Tony,

I'm fairly certain that the 16 inch AFCO cooling fan is single speed.

More than likely if it is 2 wires...

I was just curious. I've been dealing with 2 speed, 3 wire, cooling fans lately.
Having to deal with wiring up 2 relays, 3 if I plan on having AC, and then I have either 2 switches or one 3 lead switch to wire up and decide where is the best place to put it.

So it got me to thinking about your setup and what you may be doing, or have done, to deal with yours.

Yes, it has two wires.

The Davies Craig digital controller will be cconnected to and control the fan operation
