Well, after about a years break because of brother dying, garage on fire, holidays, bad weather, etc, I am back on the case. Decided to remove one engine for a better profile and balance. Also started buying parts of the correct era.

They are 1921 Yank, probably truck or very heavy car. Just welded up shock mounts today, and rad support metalwork. Rad is very heavy - all I can do to lift it.
