Re: Re-torque head nuts

Well I tried the Permatex high temp with teflon and they still leak as bad as they did originally. I'm going to try Kiwi's idea with the 3M weatherstrip adhesive.
Am I missing something here?? The...

Re: Re-torque head nuts

Really? Can you elaborate on this? I know they make black or yellow. Does it matter? Just brush it on?
Thanks

Re: Re-torque head nuts

Still have leaks on two of the three studs I pulled. I used Permatex aviation. I’m running straight water right now. Anything else I could try?

Re-torque head nuts

I had to pull three studs due to leaking. I cleaned, resealed and installed them back in the block. The heads are still on the motor.
My question is how do I torque these down?
Should I torque them...

35 radiator

Can an early style car radiator fit in a car with a later style radiator?
I would think so but wanted to see my options. Correctness is not a factor.
Thanks Joe

Re: New Motor Overheating

Sounds very similar to what I'm running. Running cooler now. I used the stock radiator with the last blower motor I had in it with no problems.
Thanks
