Default Re: White vinegar as radiator flush

My 39 always had an issue running hot at at (on most summer days) 210. This is with 170 stats. Didn’t matter whether I was doing city driving or highway.

I pulled it over the winter and brought it to a radiator shop. He cleaned it chemically and then pressure tested it. Cost was best $80 bucks I spent in a long time. Car runs at a constant 170.

I should also mention, I think this is original radiator with the split down middle.
