Re: Overheating Problem

RedRon, I don't think the temp gauge reading was unusual for driving in 96 degrees heat. The rad flush was probably the main problem. I have found that filling the rad with water + Waterwetter instead of the 50:50 antifreeze/ water mix really helped lower the temperature in my 47. Just have to remember to change it before the snow flies up here. I would be interested in knowing how the flex fan works to lower the temperature also. The water distribution tube is a pain to remove as you know but it is essential to keeping the coolant evenly distributed along that long block.
