I bought this truck cooler a hundred years ago. Probably over kill,
but the price was right. It's got an electric, temp operated fan,
I'll wait till needed. Cut a slot out of the front splash apron for removal.
Test day tomorrow.
so when I blew the cooling hose on the trany cooler, I took it out of the loop.
Hooked up the temp gauage again, corectly with a ground wire,
this time. Went for a cruse down by the river on the flat lands. No hills no work load.
In the mid 40's, gauge took 1/2 hour to read 160*. I can see why they like to
run through the radiator. Prety quick to 180*, hit 220 twice after long waits at signals.
Temp drops once you get moving, stuck around 170-180.
I wouldn't try this in summer. Going to install a new cooler/fan unit.
I'll test w/o fan first.
I've had the front off this car a few times. Every time I say what a PIA to change a trun signal.
Of course I didn't do anything about it, so the grill comes off tomorrow.
not what your thinking
got the 351 in cosmolene and visqueen- hows the spelling so far?
Speaking of anti rusting agents, the engine compartment and the front 1/2
of the under carriage wont rust this winter.
It's all been well coated with 3 1/2 quarts trany fluid, when a hose blew off.
Lucky I was a block from the house.
