66 Harrison Finger guard

66 Harrison Finger guard

I was having a difficult time finding a finger guard for my Harrison radiator. Today I made my own finger guard. Took about 4 hours. Pleased how it turned out as I thought it would take two or three tries. I don't have a guard to copy, just a couple bits left over when the original was hacked off.


I wanted to update my Project thread but I have not replied for more than a year and its locked.

Re: 66 Harrison Finger guard

Nice job Tom. Those stamped indents must have been difficult. I suppose a 4 row would have a little longer arms. Assuming that is a 3 row.

Re: 66 Harrison Finger guard

This is a three row, four row is a little longer and I don't have a good clear picture of one from the top and side, like an Isometric. I squished the parts in my vise. It was fairly easy, the metal is the roof of my parts car.

One thing I would do differently is make a buck for the fold in the middle. Because the folded area is not flat the metal has to stretch.
