Default Re: Ok so a brand new radiator and it still runs hot

Well I got my flat fixed and once again verified point gap and timing. Headed out for a 5 mile run to see how things would go. Just 100 degrees today but temps only got over 190 when I stopped and came back down when I started to roll. 180-190 has always been where it would run in the summer. I also tried straight water. Almost identical results. I don't know if you would call this solved but it's manageable.

I am going to call Bergs in the morning and talk to them about a 3 core radiator. I am intrigued on how one would fit as I have only a fingers width between the end of the water pump shaft and the 2 core radiator.

Bobpo do you have a temp gauge on the car to share your temps now?
