Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Bubba set up my distributor and he said it was right on the money. I did suck all the debris I could out of the block before I installed it. There wasn’t much in it. The timing on these is tricky to...

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Well the shroud did not help that much. I ran it the other day, about 80 degrees out and she went north of 200 again. Any other suggestions before springing for a new radiator?

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Been awhile but I am still at it. Decided to make a custom buy factory looking fan shroud. Test drive tomorrow to see how it does. There is no air movement now outside of the shroud.

Re: Unshielded wires

Yes with the engine running. What is so special about my ignition? If I use the same tools on my 100% stock 1960 F-100, all my tools read normal. It has the same voltage regulator, basically the same...

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

With 180 thermostats in and water wetter the temp got up to 200-205 so I brought it home to avoid it going any higher. Dang. I do not have the cash for a new radiator.

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Not many hills here in Michigan. I drive it as the speed limit dictates. I like running it at 55, it is the sweet spot.

Re: ‘36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

I undestand how thermostats are intended to bring the engine up to temp quicker, but I am confused by people who say they don’t slow coolant flow. How can they not? The opening in a thermostat is...
