Help with v8 cooling!!!!
OK i finally got my crate motor started after a year in progress. Now i have a problem where it heats up, and just keeps going. it has done this since the first startup. it will run, get up to about 225-230 before i shut it off. I had a used radiator, so i went ahead and replaced the radiator, and the water pump, no dice. i had a stock 180 thermostat in, and put a 160 in, no difference.
anyone have any ideas? i was running a puller electric fan but i'm having problems with that. so i set up a box fan on the outside of it to help cool, but regardless the sonofabitch just heats right up. i also have a flex fan i can use, but no shroud. i was thinking they pushed air out of the engine bay, but forgot they pulled air in so i need a shroud.
anything ANYONE can think of?
Everyone that lives, dies. But not everyone that dies has really lived.
