Re: Need biggest downflow radiator for 68 Torino
Sure, I'll try a couple of more tests. I don't want to spend money I don't need to.
I noticed it hitting 210 at idle after a few mile drive. Outside temp was 93 degrees. If a thermostat's job is to keep the coolant in the radiator long enough to cool down before letting it back in, I can't see how a cooler stat will change things in this case. With hot outside air a radiator with more surface area or better conductive capability would hopefully be able to transfer the heat before hitting the block again. A cooler stat would let the coolant out of the block sooner, but if the heat can't be exchanged fast enough I'm still gonna run hot.
