Cooling

Just a couple of cooling issues. I have a XT Fairmont with a mild 351C which used to want to run at 200 deg F, but has been pulled down for a freshen up. The radiator was about 20% blocked according to the Rad.Shop, so he reconditioned it ( the radiator is 520 wide X 560 high, 3 core ). He also suggested that I put on a shroud ( mounting 500 wide X 390/400 high) and put in a proper cleveland thermostat. Can anyone help with locating the right thermostat by brand and part number and also as to where I may be able to find a shroud to fit. The engine is going to be fitted with my new cast waterpump, and also a 10 electric fan as suppliment cooling. I've been told to move the trans cooler away from the front of the radiator, does anyone have any suggestions as to where I could locate it. I just want to get these things right this time.

Re: Cooling

I'll post the trident part number tonight, be warned they are a little expensive though!

Easy way to tell if they're giving you the wrong one is to ask for a different heat range.... the proper cleveland 'stat only comes in a 180!

Re: Cooling

I put my trans cooler angled down in front of the radiator facing the road on a 45 deg angle so it gets air from the spoiler but doesn't obstruct the radiator.

I went to Ford and just got a clevo thermostat over the counter, don't recall part number. Make sure you get the 160F one.

I've found a shroud is essential and you get more cooling benefit from this mod than any other. The XD-F's have a good plastic one that should fit your application.

Re: Cooling

I'd ditch the engine fan and run the EL thermo's.The trans cooler shouldn't matter being in front. Ford never had any probs when they were ran through the radiator. With mine I had no room at all so it's mounted under the car where the standard muffler hump is. Works great (trans oil temp guage helps too) it sits up high enough so nothing will damage it.
