Looks good Bob.
Interesting to see that belt routing! Is that a second air/smog pump between the AC and Alternator?

I thought so...
Goodness, and there was me thinking there was a lot of stuff on my engine! Great place to slip in a second alternator tho!
What year is your's?
I note that you too have a hybrid serpentine/V belt system like my old '87 Suburban. However, being a CA Emissions, it was TBI.

Took the radiator to the shop today. Decided to have a custom four row larger core made and re-use my original Harrison tanks. I thought the price would be around $500.00, but then again the last time I re-cored a radiator was about 30 years ago. There is only one shop in the Albany, NY area so my price for this project is $985.00, I really don't see any other option and I want to eliminate the running hot condition that I have been experiencing over the last year. I am sure that the next owner of my 325 will appreciate it. The Onan is out now and going to the generator shop to be checked out and serviced. That will give me time to re-new the generator compartmentClick image for larger version

I finished replacing the power steering/hydroboost pressure hose and two return lines last night...you got to love Rock Auto, all factory parts at a very reasonable price ! I took the 325's generator support tray to Trombley's Auto in sunny downtown Breakabean and used his new bead blast cabinet that I sold him and re-newed the tray. It is now ready for primer and paint. I will get the generator to the shop this week. Next weekend I will hopefully get the generator compartment finished.

Bob, how long did it take you to replace all of the power steering hoses?

2 hours Brad......after I removed the radiator. Whenever I replace belts or hoses I position the clamps so that if I or a customer should have a problem on the road, they are accessable without having to remove other components.

Ok, so 2 hours with the radiator out. I wonder how long it would take with the radiator in?

I think Steve just performed this same task, maybe he'll chime in with the hours required.
