Developed a rattle/buzzing. Sound like static on the speaker.
I am missing one of my favorite wrenches. Maybe I'll find it.
Got a 195* thermostat, 13# rad cap, runs 180* now, little over 210 in traffic.

So the new rad was an inch thicker, wouldn't sit down
inside the rad frame on the bottom. That made the bottom hose connection interfere with the alternator. Raised the alt. up and the battery would not fit. Earlier I'd bought a kit to move it
so got that installed. Had to have a cut off switch for the track. Done deal.
All thats left is the electric fan to deal with.

Had to remove the mech. fan for space.
Electric fan not hooked up yet.
It ran about the same, maybe a little cooler on the road.
Got up to 180 in traffic, back down moving.
Think I'll put another temp sensor on the front of the manifold
to check diff-- can't have too many gauges!!!!!
