Swung the radiator on my FC late this afternoon, I did a feel test on the belts and they felt tight, but in the morning I'll be checking tension on the new belts and also replace the plastic radiator hose splices that we installed with the engine upgrade with new aluminum ones purchased from http://www.jagsthatrun.com/Pages/Parts_TPI-TBI_HoseSplice.html#kits the plastic ones were leaking even after tightening them a couple of times, it was suggested that I just add two additional hose clamp on each of them, but in order to get to both splices I had to swing the radiator, so I have decided to just replace them and use 4 constant torque hose clamps on each of the two splices.

I have a few more items to check out before I button things back up, I will try to get it all done before we start having the rain move in tomorrow afternoon.
