    ^^^I still say, there is NO reason our old stock Mopars can not run cool a plenty. When they don't there is a reason!!!!
    But the talking heads will tell us how their high HP engines MUST have the cooling fans, 5 core radiators, etc... funny how a 11:1 MW ran cool way back in the day????:BangHead:

      I agree! Got the water drained and the coolant back in. Got her back in the shop outta this devilish heat. We may drive her to town after the sun gets low. We'll see. So far, I think it's an improvement.

        It did keep my 318 from boiling over. But it was the wrong rad . Also had the wrong fan, spacer, and pulley. I'm slowly getting this together.
        Should work well with your slanty.

          So far, so good. It's a much better fit, too.

            Vixen got her new old tag today. I've had it a while, but we ran it into the government center today to see what it would take to get it registered. Five minutes and zero dollars. Yup. It was FREE. Now Vixen has a matching 64 model tag.

              They don't even make you put a sticker on it?

              Nope. All I have to do is keep the modern tag in the car. I put the sticker on that. I just threw it in the trunk.

                    Here you go. I also removed the heater hose bracket from the valve cover.

                        Thanks. So do I, that's why I don't understand why people cover them up. It's quite literally their crown and glory!
