60 degrees Celsius is 140 degrees Fahrenheit. so its running cool ! Operating temp for small block Chevy is about 185 degrees Fahrenheit or 85 Celsius. the reason the hose feels hard is because the cooling system is under about 15 LBs of pressure or 6.8 kg. Its normal When the engine cools down pull the radiator cap and make sure its still full!! you may have purged air trapped in the block and need to add a little coolant?

Your water pump pressurizes the system plus water expansion from heat and the radiator cap regulates it to keep it at about 15 or 16 lb.s! Your fine!!!!! And when the engine cools down your radiator cap lets coolant from the recovery tank reenter the radiator to keep it full and then pressurizes the cooling system as it warms up again after starting! Its operating good!!

If its not blowing coolant past the radiator cap and there is no water in the oil your OK!!!! Don't worry!!!! Your engine is fine!!!

What size (degree) thermostat are you running?

Good Everything is working normally But you may be running a cool thermostat like a 160 deg.F (71 celsius) and you should run a 185 deg.F ( 85 celsius) in my opinion! Lets find out what your thermostat is?

Good night Wezz its 2:30 am here LOL
