cool as a cucumber

Ive been having trouble with my 1949 deluxe 288 running hot. Many of you offered solutions to the problem. They all helped, but it still wasnt running cool enough to suit me. So I wanted to share a really effective fix in case anyone else is having this problem. I routed the output hose on top of the cylinder head directly to the heater core. Hooked the long hose from the water pump to the heater core output.Cut a rectangular hole in the heater core cover, which turned the heater core into an auxillary radiator. Worked great. Car stays right in middle of temp gage.Hope this is helpful.
