 Yep, because Model Ts didn't have much heat to dump. Same situation here. Yes, there is a 'where to mount' issue. Whatever you use to get rid of the heat needs to be mounted vertically to allow the thermosiphon to work. A foot or so of finned tubing (maybe doesn't even need to be finned!) run vertically should provide enough cooling to allow a thermosiphon to operate.

Model Ts used thermo siphon for cooling all the time. No water pump.

aka gravity flow in home heating systems. It typically requires the heat 

source (turbo bearing here) to be below the cooling device (heat 

exchanger/radiator). May be a "where to mount it issue".
