Got to do a junk run this afternoon. Stripped 10 gals of 8% junk in just under an hour. The second element speeds heat up nicely. Ran both wide open for a while and had a big stream at the parrot then killed one element. Put water in the thumper. Made some racket heating up then purred like a kitten.

Built a radiator setup on an aluminum stand directly over a 55 gal drum of water on a flat dolly. Worked great. Friend gave me an '07 Tundra radiator. 26" x 28". Put a 26" fan behind it. Fan was given to me also. One of those oscillating ones on a stand. Moves a lot of air and is pretty darn quiet. The whole thing even looks good.

So far so good with new setup. I'm happy with it as of now. We'll see how it all acts when I get to a spirit run.
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

You know what they say about pics and not happening.

Pics of the still are at beginning. Will take a couple of the radiator setup. Just finished cleaning up.
