Re: Cookie's galaxie
Thanks for the help!
The radiator is a NEW Griffin 1 1/2" tube 2 row aluminum radiator.
The themostat is a NEW 160 Hi Flow , with a flow through hole in it. I tested it, it works perfectly.
In Arizona, as you may know, it gets hot. The thrmosat is working correctly, and shows the engine running up to 215 degrees, without the AC on. I am pretty sure that when I charge up the AC, and run it, the enginbe will run even hotter.
The engine seems, to do better at idle, and low speeds, it's when you get out on the highway, and cruise, is when it seems to" inch up".
My previous engine was a 429, and it had pretty high compression. In order to get it to quit pinginh, I had to have the distributor/timing worked on. Maybe, now, with the different engine, it needs to be reset /recurved again?
Am I wrong by thinking, that with 1 60 degree stat, it shouldn't be running this hot?
