Installed metric rivet/nuts into the two holes for the alternator harness on the driver side frame. Lots of grease behind it, aluminum nuts.
Looks good, and now the broken harness ziptie-frame christmas tree pin can be forgotten.
Pulled original twin alternator wire setup from the middle of the harness down to the alternator. Only piece left in the harness is from the RF headlight area to the now cut end, at the underhood fuse block.
Replaced my slightly short 4 awg wire that was there before but not inside the harness jacket, where it can be kept nice and clean and away from direct heat and vibration.
Alternator connector redo reference. Just transfer over the rubber connector grommet and voila, you are in business. I tried to match the brassy looking type of coating also, but I may have used another type just because it was the same size of wire or larger.
1992 Dodge Colt provided this little air dam piece! I think once trimmed to fit the intercooler pipes through it, air should be directed nicely to the condenser and not escape around the radiator near the passenger side frame rail the way it was previously.
Here is a little something that just clicked in my mind when I was looking at Ebay for "clamps", to fit hoses and low and behold guess what popped into my mind when the photo appeared?
This should fit the 2" body of a coilover to make the brake lines fit nice and snug to the bracket, or rather the bracket fit nice and snug to the strut housing! BAM!!!! Just because no one has shown a picture of this exact part on their struts before, I figured I would have to make something work versus using the "spoon" brackets they feed you when you order the kits and say "make it work" and "buy new lines to make it work". I already have my lines thank you very much.
This is how my AC evaporator core looked once I was able to access the brake booster bolts. I hope no one loses their AC charge by bending lines like I did! Be very aware of that fact if you attempt this. I only did that because the lower half of the box would not let go even with all the little tabs removed, bolts removed and plastic push pin retainers.
Experiment "temporalis" to see if the 12" fan can be made to work with the stock turbo shroud with minimal workover. It did. Yes, that is household foam for your copper tubing in the ceiling/walls/floors. I can't get the aluminum race radiator in there just yet, as it will require lowering the lower mounts and possibly notching the cross member the sink the radiator low enought to clear the rad cap to hood clearance issue I can already forsee just by eyeballing things. Or holesaw the support on the hood. I thought you would like my first idea better.
Voila, fan in place. It is held in by the three screws that hold the motor to the motor case. I enlarged the holes on the shroud side and things worked out well. It is now air tight around the outside area of the fan and it provides a "decent" transition into the fan blade area. Time will tell. If this works out well enough, then the aluminum rad idea will be overkill but might not be able to use the stock shroud. It is just so tight with the AC condenser that it could push the little round bulbous portion at the top driver side corner into the fins/rows of the radiator; so for now the stock type rad with top fitting that is internally the same as the 4g15 rad but has the "upsized" fitting feature as you push the top hose on further - then becomes 4g63 sized outer diameter. This is a full size rad from the Canadian 1992 Dodge Colt, but is an aftermarket replacement that included the unused transmission cooler fittings (which were in use for the auto trans).
