Hi all,

Wondering if someone with a '38 Ford Deluxe might be able to measure the total width from outside drivers to outside passengers side front fenders at the top of the wheel arch for me. ...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I am not aware that any of the head bolts go into any of the oil galleries? Am I missing something?

I believe that I was drawing a small amount of coolant into the combustion chamber (as could be...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

Sneaky bastage camera playing tricks on our eyes. I hadn't noticed it previous to your post. I just ran down to the shop to verify...the dark spot on the photo doesn't exist anywhere but in that...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

You nailed it on the big bore gaskets comments...my block is .080" over so I had to use the big bore gaskets.

I had not seen the "parts number" reference to those cracks before (looked it up...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I am glad to have found the issue, but was also curious about why my coolant tests in the shop did not show any signs of the failure as well. I discussed this with the rad shop owner (good...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

To close the loop and follow up on this one...the rad checked out fine. So this took me back to the engine and the possibility of head gasket failure (or start of failure). So while the coolant was...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I have a heater and the coolant continually cycles through it (no shut off valve). According to the guy that was following me, the overflow puked each time I got to the top of a climb. In seeing how...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

The coolant recovery tank is not tight to the core (it's spaced off by about an inch) and I run with a fan and without hood sides so the rad seems to be able to get lots of air through it. Thanks for...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

When I take the rad in next week, I'm going to ask them pressure test the rad and cap as a unit, as well flow test the core. I don't think the thermostats were causing air pockets as I've drilled an...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

Thanks for the reply...my waterpumps have about 500 miles on them. I'm hoping that's not enough miles to wear them out.

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I re-torqued the heads earlier this week...didnt get any movement on any of the bolts.

I'm taking the rad in next week to be checked over and further modified.

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

So, I emptied the cooling system of fluids to take the rad out for modifications (raising the height of the filler neck (and I may even have an bleeder fitting installed at the highest point). While...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I think you're on to something with the filler neck being lower than the top of the tank introducing too much air and hence frothing into the coolant at higher rpms. Thanks for that idea/thought!

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

That is pretty much how mine was designed and made...which is why I was shocked at the gallon I lost in a couple hours of driving. Not sure if I had kept going whether it would have kept puking, I...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

Interesting, so how do you seal the puke can? I wonder if it would exceed 7 psi in the "closed system? If so, might it damage the rad? Interested in hearing more.

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I have a coolant system pressure tester which includes a simulated filler neck to pressure test the rad cap. I tested it yesterday it held to 7 lbs, released at 7.5 lbs. I checked the lower sealing...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I understand that too much coolant to begin with might have been an issue...but I would have thought the 7 lb rad cap would have helped (and the recapture of coolant in the recovery tank...assuming...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I built the coolant overflow tank...so you never know, maybe I built it backwards, lol. I'll be looking into that when I get back into the shop tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I started with the top inch or so of the top rad tank and the recovery tank being empty. On top of that, it lost another gallon. I'm not sure if it would keep puking (I chickened out, and didn't want...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

I might chalk the 170 degrees to variance in the Stewart Warner electric temp gauges. On start up, the engine quickly rises to 170-175 on the gauge and then is rock solid. There may be room to run a...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)
