That's hilarious. You look like you are expecting change from your dollar in that first photo.

Cheers to the man who just decides to go for it!

Re: Convert to Freshwater Cooled ?

why could you not put the heat exchanges in the water tank and use that water to cool it. yea, I know it would raise the temperature some but how much. If you have a 100 gallon water tank would that be enough to keep the engine cool??

How hot do you want your coffee? That might work for refrigeration but certainly not for engine cooling.
