Sounds like you guys are doinf well with your own projects,sorry I havnt been here much lately, I have been distracted by my new toy (97 1500SE).
Yes Beave I did use blue loctite for all bolts on final assembly,a habit from my HD days. I wash all threads down with brake clean first.
On the new style tensioner Ibent the redi-rod (all thread) in a curve to follow the path of the alternator during adjustment and put a bent forward to counter the angle of the frame where it clamps on.
Bob, keep us posted on those 7" fans you found, they should have plenty of CFM to do the job.
