How do you like it so far. I've had mine running for about a month and I really like the slow turn on. The only noise I hear so far is the used fan bearing noise, a very slight whine. With cold temperatures my fan rarely ever runs, the radiator does an amazing job of removing heat without a fan.

I installed my DCC fan controller down in the corner in front of my battery. Regards,

The controller has performed flawlessly.

Its just the pain in the arse it was dealing with the company, their lack of response to e mails and the p poor shipping that I don't care for at all.

So you still have the underdrive balancer? What diameter difference again was that, and the water pump pulley? Regards,

New Optima Red Top battery installed today. I got a series 34 with 800 CCA.

The "old" Optima Yellow Top is now serving as an electronics battery on the boat.

New powder coated power steering pump pulley.

Jon Smith ( jtsmith ) did a marvelous job with the pulley.
