Winter heat

I have posted a few pics of my winter heat setup.  I fly down to 0F with this heating arrangement.  I cover the right hand rad with cardboard and duct tap.  I leave a two inch space around the top of the rad for adjustment.  I tape up the last two inches on colder days and run with the top two inches un-taped when the weather warms up a bit.

I have added one more picture showing the front of the rads.  I added a diagonal brace from one cylinder head bolt up to the top one of the rad brackets.  A crack developed in the rad bracket where it attaches to the head bolt after about 25 hours..  I had it welded and then added the chromalloy bracket.  I have over 250 hours on it since I fixed the cracked bracket.  The crack probably occurred due to the added weight of the duct work bolted to the one rad.
