Default Re: running hot

My engine had perfect timing, but pinged until I cleaned the block. All the junk built up in the rear of the block caused a hot spot, then while driving 45 to 50 on the freeway for 40 miles, some of that junk came loose and blocked the radiator tubes.

After flushing the block and radiator, it's fine now. And you can't flush it with a garden hose. Do a search to see how I flushed mine.
