Woaaaa!!! Man it hit 260*?? Geez, I **** myself if I see mine creeping up slowly past the 230 mark
That can't be good for your tranny either and other stuff starts breaking down and cooking but blah blah blah, enough of my nagging. 99% agree completely with tm454 about his advice. Go with a belt driven fan if space permits and definately have a shroud to direct the flow through the radiator and don't be the dummy who installs the fan backwards lol. Only thing I don't agree about/not sure about is the watter wetter stuff, I'm pretty skeptical about it working but it might so give it a try. That mother of an engine's going to be a lil tougher to keep cooler but see if you can switch to a clutch fan setup like was mentioned before or a good "production" not aftermarket, electric fan. That new water pump won't really help you at all so don't be surprised if that doesn't fix it.
