Further Description/Back Story Bought a cen as a tow rig to tow rigs and equipment down to local craw spots and hobby shop. First time out, Loaded up with two crawlers one the goose neck and headed down. Had a great time…… till the trip back up the hill home. Got about 300 ft up the hill and the motor hit its 180deg thermal cut. So there I was lookin like a circus act carrying two crawlers a 32 inch goose neck trailer and the cen back home while riding a one wheel. No pic unfortunately… So the project was on! Turned 10mm out of a boat motor water jacket and tigged it up. Laser cut a radiator tube jig to drill all the holes in upper and lower tanks. Cut all the tubes and drilled holes for caps and hose barbs then Soldered together. 3D printed mounts and shroud for fans. It’s Running a micro brushless pump. Have tested all the way up the 1/4 mile hill now. Ran full throttle with heaviest crawler, hydraulic skid steer and a 10lb +/- rock. Didn’t get over 104. Project was a functional success. 🤘🏼
