Heating problem. I have a 4core copper brass radiator cooling my car. It came of an 8cyl Granada and is top to bottom flow. Is it supposed to cool a 302 sufficiently? Also I don't have a motor driven fan on the car, but 2 * 12" electric pull fans. The car keeps on showing just under the red, but I don't know if the problem could be that I am still using the 180Cid V6 gage. Do the V6's run cooler than the V8's or are my fans to small? What could be the problem

Well is that a dummy light or a gauge if its just a light I would suggest hooking up a good water temp gauge and see what it is real running in temprature.

Ok I took the car for a drive this morning and it was about 50Deg/f outside and if I cruize at a steady 50 or 60mph then she stays super cool in that she does not even hit half temp. But when its a bit warmer (we often see 85 - 90 and I putter along at 30mph then she gets real hot. Are my fans to small or is it the radiator.
