Re: Cooling Problem
there should be two hoses coming from your radiator.
1 is up the top of the radiator, the other is down the bottom.
The one at the top will run from the left hand side of the rad, facing towards the motors. That hose will go from the rad to a cast 90 degree "housing". If the hose does go to something that is bolted to the engine block with two bolts, its a cleveland.
If the top rad hose goes onto the Intake manifold and straight down, then the motor is a 351 windsor :(
If you have found that it goes to the engine block, remove the top hose, then undo the "thermostat housing", which is the 90 degree opbject the hose was pushed over. Remove that item and you should see a thermo stat just sitting in the slot. A good replacement thermostat is a Dayco DT66A ( I believe that correct ). When you bolt the "thermo housing" back on its a good idea to use a new gasket if the old one is looking not so good. You will also want to use some gasket selant too.
