B42 Radiator/grill mount

Recommended Posts

Am assembling a 1954 B42 after many years of the parts being refurbished and stored. Forgot the order of the grill, radiator, rubber seal as they are mounted to the support. It seems to me that the rubber goes next to the support, then the radiator, then the grill. If that is correct can anyone tell me if there is enough torque when the special bolts squeeze all four parts together to keep everything stationary, or is there another part I am missing?

I appreciate the come back. It just seemed to me that simply squeezing the radiator and grill together with whatever amount of pressure the rubber seal would give may not be enough to keep everything stationary.

I must confess I was a bit sacrilegious in regards to my treatment of a true B42. I used all the B42 cab metal and fastened it to an International 4700 LPX chassis with a T444E engine and Allison auto transmission. Of course just about everything is modified to make fit. It is still not finished, but maybe I can get one of my kids to take a photo of the present state and attach one, or so. I am not too computer savvy.
