Thanks, Trees -- I'll post a copy here as soon as I get it.

Centerline -- Thanks for the info, bro'. I took a quick look at the bottom of my radiator (engine side) today (just briefly) and all I saw was the pet**** for draining the rad. I'll take a more serious look tomorrow.

The temp sensor I have in there now, is a 190/170 ... that is, it turns my fan on at 190* and off at 170* ... is that a good choice if it's located at the bottom of the radiator? It's presently installed in the manifold, right next to the thermostat -- that's where I want to move my temp sender (for my temp gauge) which is presently on the driver side of my engine, right by the plugs and headers -- maybe that's why I'm getting lower readings on my gauge??? According to my gauge (which I know isn't a perfect reading at present) the fan comes on at 180* and doesn't shut off until 140*.

I have HEI isystem; 350/350; 4 bbl Edelbrock 600 cfi; headers; mild hyd cam.
