NEVER touch the steel coupler (with the radial holes) when it is cold. If there has been the tiniest leak it is stuck when cold and breaks. It is fragile and needs to be so to not transport heat!

Bob! Screw the steel coupler all the way down.

This "lifts" the block, prevents fan shroud contact and increases teflon pressure (u only want this if you use the I2K. Else the teflon life is reduced, so THEN leave the gap like picture!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
