'53 4104. Roadworthy but rough around the edges.

well Im still worrried but we will see.  The van already has a 31 in it and I have a twin 31 as a spare.  Appears there might be room for 2 31s in the engine bay....the lower  engine shield really is a pain, as I would gladly put some coals under the engine while I waited for the coffee to brew.   Really depends n how cold it gets.   The last few winters have not had many -30 days.
This little van is also the morning school bus for my kids, otherwise I probably would not care so much.  In the past, if an engine would not start I would cancel the work day(mental health day) stay home and count my blessings.
