No welding today; mocked up the nose, radiator, fan and steering rack to ensure they package well. Jim, Midlana #2 builder, asked if there was room for a puller fan. Right after I said “No, pusher only”, I remembered I’d bought a puller fan myself, doh(!) so now there’s room for a puller <em>or</em> pusher. Still deciding on how the radiator exit ducting will route. Verified that steering shaft routing is a no-brainer; it’ll route upward using a second U-joint to ensure the shaft clears the driver’s feet and to ensure it’ll collapse into a “Z” in an accident.
