[TR] TR3A Apron Off!

Took the apron off my 48k mile 61 TR3A for the first time.  Not as bad as I
was thinking it was going to be.  I am changing out the original Coventry
radiator with an aluminum one and installing yellow TR6 fan and new install
kit  to help with keeping engine in the normal range.  Will flush out engine
along the way.  Not worried about correctness for shows, but enhanced

What else should I do while I have front access to the engine? The car was
frame off restored 30 years ago and only 2000 miles on since.  Still very
clean.  I replaced front engine mounts, cooling hoses, fan belt. The car had
an electric fan on the front of the radiator.  I had hoped to put one on the
engine side of the radiator but there is only 1 1/2 inch clearance between
rad and front hub. Should I keep electric fan on front as backup, although
it might block air going in?  Should I change out timing seal, gaskets?  Any
thoughts on items to do with apron off much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
