Solved a lot in my time!
But one instance that comes to mind happened some years ago. I had a load of wood on a 57 Ford pickup and taking off from a stop sign, an engine mount tore loose. the resulting roll of the engine put the fan into the radiator. Didn't have money for a new radiator, but did have a 64 Dodge Polara with a good radiator, BUT, it lacked about two inches being wide enough. Scratched around through my "stash" of nondescript metal and came up with two pieces of one inch angle already drilled full of holes as they were for a metal work bench. Took care of the spacer problem, but then the top radiator hose outlet on the radiator was larger than the one on the truck. As luck would have it, the top hose from the engine just would slide inside the top hose from the Dodge. I applied a generous amount of Indian Head shellac to the smaller hose and slid it inside the larger, put a hose clamp on it, and dove that truck about two more years.
