Getting there.. I prolly won't put too much more on before I drop it in. Next thing will prolly be to pull the old 258 out along with the trans.

I have attempted to replace the stock radiator- with one for the 304, and one of 4WD cool alluminum ones. The lower neck is an issue with the serp belt. Anybody else having this problem?

That's a good question and an issue Im sure I'll run into...but anyone use thse headers? If I get the ones from Speedway then I'd need a mini-starter..

What kind of problem are you having? Is your engine stuffed pretty far forward? My lower neck is a pretty good distance from the serpentine belt. This is with the 3 core radiator.

Can't help you with the headers. I went with the set from Advanced Adapters and although it is close to the stock starter, it does clear.

Those headers look very similiar to the ones I bought. I don't see any issues with them fitting.

OK- as I have admitted several times on this forum, I can get stupid. I finally remembered the guys that wired up all the goodies moved the radiator up about 1.25 inches to clear the PS pump. Dropped the 304 rad in the original holes and- perfect fit. Duh.
I used the Summit headers- shorties for an F150. The ones on your link look more center dump than I remember mine being.

Coiz- I don't have an electric fan, and my block is a '69, if that helps.

Thanks guys, actually Havasu Living (JF member on here) posted earlier that he used the Summit ones (SUM-G9063) that I posted, so I will order them up.

Sweet buggy.

I think you'll be happy with those headers. The doughnut stye flanges typically seal better than the flat style.

CJ7Rob, only thing you need to do now is send them to JetCoat and have them ceramic coated like I did . Makes them look great and forget about rusting and looking like crap in a couple of years...... They run much cooler as well... you probably already know that..... Motor is looking great and sweet dune buggy.....

Thanks guys...yea it has been a busy spring with these toys. Good point on the ceramic coating Calvin. Your motor looks nice in there. Do you guys know about how much it would cost to have the T-176 rebuilt? I already have the rebuild kit by Crown, thanks.
