26.1 Down Flow Radiator Install w/ Electric Fan

How to tell if you have a V8 or 6-cylinder Core Support

How to tell if you have a V8 or 6-cylinder Core Support

Note:  1955-57 Chevy’s mounted their radiators in different positions, depending on which engine was installed, V8 or 6-cylinder.  The V8 radiator mounted in the V8 position, engine side of the core support, and used a V8 core support.  6-cylinder cars mounted the radiator on the grille side of the core support for clearance, since the 6-cylinder was longer than the V8, and used a 6-cylinder core support.  The handy info page to the left will explain things better.  Click the pic for a larger version.

When we started our 1955 4-Door Project, nicknamed Hela, one of the things we wanted to incorporate was a 3″ narrowed John’s Industries 9″ Ford rear axle assembly.  These are bolt in, made for your Tri-Five axle assemblies that are virtually bulletproof.  You have to move the leaf springs inboard to install one and we thought this would make for a good install article. We ran an abridged  Continue reading

22.2 Evans Waterless Cooling System Install

We thought that the Evans Coolants were so cool we did this article on how to do a conversion. Evans coolant is waterless…so you don’t get any rust in your engine water jackets AND the stuff boils at a whopping 375˚F.  So even the mightiest and most out of control Big Block won’t overheat. We think that is worth the price of admission alone, but it does so much more.

In this article we replace our old sealed beam headlights with a pair of new XEON headlights.  And what a difference it made.  We are using a ’56 for our install, but the process is the same for all years and pretty much all styles of replacement headlights available today.  Halogen, XEON, HID, LED etc.

1955-1957 Chevy UniSteer Rack and Pinion Install – Updated January 9, 2020

Note. We originally did this install back in 2011 on our 1956 Hardtop test mule.  The part numbers of the rack have changed and Unisteer no longer makes a different unit for Small or Big Block applications or LS applications. Their current offerings cover all.  We have updated part numbers etc for 2020 and lined out anything that no longer applies.  So here is the article.  Click on the pics to see them full size.

Recently we received some questions thru Trifive.com regarding the use of an original column shift steering column with a UniSteer Rack and Pinion conversion. As this is a very popular conversion, we thought a tech article would help clear up some confusion. Continue reading
