Hinson radiator clearance hood
« on: August 24, 2014, 04:08:40 PM »
Does anyone know how to clear the radiator and the closure if the hood. Mime seems  to have problems clearing the radiator cap. It hits at that part.

Any feedback. I have already lowered the side of the radiator using rubber washers on bottom mount. But that's just a quick fix. My plate cover  now doesnt bolt up.

Odds are the radiator is not in the correct mounting holes. The radiator should be spaced down from the frame rails using rubber grommets. This protects the radiator from the flexing frame rails and vibrations. The radiator mounts at an angle leaning towards the engine. You will know that it is close when the upper shroud is in alignment.
