Replacing the oil cooler with a Ford Performance 90º adapter:
I waited until today to install it, because i wanted the lower radiator hose installed to make sure i got the clocking correct.
Its snug, but it fits!
If the radiator is in, that means its time for fluids too:
...and where we left off for the day:
All thats left now is to top off the radiator, prime the oil pump, and stab the distributor. Which means the next day i get out there to work, i should be able to start it up! Here's hoping it all goes well!
