Timing is adjusted to 8 degrees btdc. I reinstalled the stock carb today and the innards of the carb were adjusted to stock spec with the rebuild kit. Other than that I adjusted idle speed and mix by ear.

You need a 4 row and 3000 cfm of air to stay cool in the summer heat.

13 lb cap is good. Strange that it should cool it. After all it came that way. Only thing I can think of is a blockage in the rad.

Re: Overheating madness!

So I guess a bigger rad is the next step? Hard to believe that the stock equipment doesn't do the job anymore. Is the configuration of a 460 radiator's hose inlet and outlet anywhere near a small blocks? Is it worth the monkeying around to make it work?
