I guess it's normal to shoot the messenger. Try this site for info. I'm sure most hotrodders would respect the word of Stewart Components (high flow water pumps).

Trees, does your little paper also tell you that aluminum transfers heat better than copper?? I am just a dumb farmer but I always learned thru textbooks and experience that copper is better than aluminum for transfering heat. And altho I do not recommend using straight water (because of corosion and low boil temp) but straight water does much better job at pulling out heat as well as getting rid of heat than antifreeze mix does. Some people think that by making a stronger mix it might help cool , but it makes it slightly worse.

OK...before this thread spins further out of control, let me address some of the points that blndweasel made.

Some folks are mad about what I said and some are mad about how I said it.

I agree 100% with the comment that this site has some very knowledgeable people. In fact I consider trees and troy-curt part of that knowledgeable group. However, none of us (including myself) are correct on all of our ideas and every post we make. If someone has a dissenting opinion, it needs to be aired and hopefully resolved to a common understanding. At no time during this thread was I ever mad, upset or personally offended with anyone who disagreed. I was looking for a dialog to see if we could reach agreement. If I offended anyone, either grow some thicker skin or use the ignore button and shut me out. When I see something I disagree with and feel I have supporting data, I'll stick with it until we reach some kind of understanding. I would expect others to do the same when they disagree with me technically. As a point of reference, this thread was rather mild compared to many others in the past.

Guys Guys... we cant let differences of opinion start up feelings against each other. That just gets in the way of a good debate! I was enjoying this one.

I have learned a few things on this topic again.

ASTROPS... Do you deal with Gene at Warrior Engines there in Oshawa? He runs a good shop and fair prices! I take all my blocks to him.

Ktaves, I have been rooked by more than one "dumb" farmer cause they never stop learning!! Yeah, there are other materials that transfer heat better than others, but who is making copper or lead rads these days? Cost prohibitive.

The military has the best schools in this country because of their method of teaching. Their educational culture understands that the human brain, while the best computer by far, only absorbs a fraction of what it is exposed to. Thus, the military repeats itself over and over and states the material in different ways until everone totally understands the same material. Because of threads like this, we are doing the same thing. I learn something almost every day and one of the things I learn is that some of my conceptions of how something works have not been totally correct because someone addressed the subject from a different prospective that opend my mind. That is what keeps me spending time on this great site and you will seldom find me telling someone they are flat out wrong!!!

Yeah email me if you want the Tel. no. Ktaves1967@cs.com Gene is the guys name and he has charged me 200 bucks Canadian for a hot tank, bore and hone, with cam bearings installed and frost plugs and block painted. But I was bringing him quite a few blocks for awhile there. But he is fair and really knows his stuff.

hey vic,

sorry I got a little firey sunday... that link you posted to stewart components is really great. I think perhaps a few of your initial posts were worded a little tricky, and then when you went off on the sarcasm rant it rubbed me the wrong way since everyone in this post is essentially trying to help by contributing something.

at any rate, the stewartcomponents.com tech tips were clearly explained and support your argument.

no hard feelins?

blndweasel, I'm not upset with you or anyone else. It's all good. I have a lot of respect for the folks on this site as I said earlier. I just wish I would have found that link to Stewart Components earlier in the discussion. Have a great day.
