All vacuum (low pressure) systems might need a reservoir as in the case of a comressed air system.  Without the reservoir, there is very little ability to stroke a piston or like device.

I installed the aluminum radiator off of Ebay after finding my radiator was no longer going to survive.  I though it was a great deal and it showed up in perfect shape and installed it- looks great, works great.
I just ordered the Derale puller 4000 cfm electric fan from Summit:
My question is, there are two switches available.  One temperature probe fits into the radiator fins, the other comes with an NPT fitting.  I am not sure where to install the NPT fitting so I am leaning towards the fin probe.
Does anyone have any strong feelings about this?  I am sure the NPT direct method is faster than the fins reading, but does it matter?
I also need to know how I should adjust the temperature switch.  There are two switches (one for each fan).  Do I set them to the temperature of the thermostat?  I do stagger there turn on settings, so that if one fan is sufficient, then I only one fan turns on?
The fans, both on, draw a maximum of 50 amps.

Talking about Ford ave, did anyone see the message from Ford to GM?

I have always liked cars of various breeds, never was into the dumb fights over who was better.  I always thought they all made crap, and made good stuff. 
The merger betyween Chrysler and GM will sure quiet a bunch of those arguments!

Oh wow, just noticed my rating name!  Simca.  That has got to be a reference to Latkza's wife, right?  I love when people catch the subtle reference!
Who came up with that?  Nice work!

I think there might be something wrong with the site.  I was not able to retrieve my old handle.  Thats cool, this is sort of a tribute to Andy Kaufman at any rate.
Glad to be here! 
I am getting the Newport back this Tuesday from the paint shop (again).  I wasn't happy with the first effort, so it had to be reworked. 
New motor in, new paint, next, new interior and tranny.  I think I'm going to go for a 2200 stall converter.  I have never driven a stall converter, but a freind of mine has convvincede me that it will help get the car motivated.  I also think that I am losing a lot of power through the old transmission.  I am hoping that a new crisper shifting tranny will get more power to the ground.  What do you guys think?
