Very true. I spent alot of time and money tracking down the issue with a hot running SBC.Mace said:The stock motors cool just fine with a properly maintained stock radiator. If you have cooling issues you might want to make sure that the cooling system is in order before you start replacing stuff.
That is just one of the many neat things about a f/2F they never overheat unless something is wrong (dig for the cruiser motor haters )
Is there a huge difference between a 3 and 4 core? I'm not sure what I have now, don't know what to look for. But it's due for replacement soon, can't trust stop-leak for too long. Right now my truck cools fine, the stock gauge usually reads between the first line and dead center.dacicci said:i would stisck with the stock one just make sure you geat a 4 row not a three, i run a four row in both of my 40s both have aftermarket carbs and one has dui ign and headers it runs cool as a cucumber on a stocker
