Re: 69 302 overheating

What he said about the air pocket.... I had one of those one time even though I thought I had gotten all the air out of it. Turns out I didn't. You may already know but the best solution is drilling a small hole in the thermostat that way once the coolant starts circulating it is guaranteed to get all the air out before forming steam pockets.
