Paul by doing that I will haven't also move the engine back & change engine mounts as well as the steering angle that makes it a big job & then engineers get involved

Dunno about any of that stuff

How about a water cooled intercooler
Smaller and doesn't have to fit in front of the radiator

Just thoughts thats all, shame to go chopping a bonnet up, wont be long and they will be getting thin on the ground

Waldo, My old rememberer just remembered Something..;)

20 odd years ago I used to occasionally bump into a Bloke who had a SAR with a big Cam Cummins. he'd changed the Aftercooler to an Air to Air One.
From Memory He used a combined Radiator/ Aftercooler from (I think) an Ford LTS9000. It was a Lightweight Aluminum crossflow Radiator & took up far less space than the Big vertical Bolted tank Kenworth Radiator..

Hope this Helps..

That N14 into an S2 must have been a bit squeezy, although didnt the second series come out with the raised floor and optional 230 Crummins??
I also think that they may have even had one with the 270 Custom Torque, they would have been the same basic N14 engine??
Saw photo of an S2 with the wider bonnet/ radiator, dont know if a factory one or modified 'W' bonnet.
Looked better than the earlier narrow bonnet 903's
Even those, S2's with 903 and manual steering/ crowbars on the back used to handle well , Eastoes had quite a few of them, also Wettenhalls, latter went like the clappers!

Waldo,
I found a couple of pics on my phone- here you go.
Not sure if you’ll like the look of this or not, but it certainly works.
I didn’t do it, the previous owner must have. A REASONABLY simple operation though I reckon? (Says me anyway!)
Let me know if you’d like some more pics, I’m away but will be home in a few days and can take some for you.
Cheers
Rich

Gday Waldo,
I forgot about your pics! Sorry mate.
These are a few from the outside, let me know if you'd like a some from the inside as well. As you can see she's a bit "snouty" but too bad, thats a first world problem I reckon. And I'm not sure what other option would be any better?
Anyway good luck with the project, keep us posted please.
Cheers
Rich

thanks Prodrive. After looking at the Pics I might be able to bend up the sides to make them one piece & eliminate the a row of bolts. We are just about up to the sandblasting of the chassis & then we start on the bonnet so I will keep you updated. The photos that I sent you are how it is now.

That's a very neat job Rich.
Not easy to get sheet metal to behave so well.
Looks the goods, Paul.
