Sorry guys. My keyboard decided it needed a cleaning at the most worst
time.

Anyway,

I would like some suggestions on cooling my newly built (10 miles) 302
Bronco II. As some of you may know it is weel built. .040 over, TRW
forged flat-tops, 650 Edel. elec. choke carb. worked heads, cam, headers,
custom 4-core radiator, and brand new EDEL and motorsports top to bottom. I
installed a 190 degree therm. to keep the temp up a little. I have a 16
inch electric fan on the radiator. I am not sure what it will do on the
long and short highway trips but idle in the driveway it stays on about 225
degrees during a 90 plus day. ALSO the fan therm. is not kicking on until
very late. i think it is a 180 but you know how long it takes to get the
radiator temp. up that much. Is this unacceptable or should i look at
finding some way to add a flex fan? Should or can I get a 140 thermostat
for the electric? I am very tight on space and could not easily find a flex
that would bolt right on the water pump when i went looking for the electric
fan.

One more thing. I have a shallow pan on a C-4 that should have had a deep
pan on it. will this make the tranny run good for a few minutes then not 20
mins. later? maybe not holding enough fluid or letting it heat up too
quick. I do not have my cooler hooked up until next week when my lines and
fittings come in.

Thanks

Maybe you could relocate the sensor for the fan to somewhere on the engine.

Subject: Oil Pressure Questions

A quick question to all the experts on these lists. I have an '89 F250 4X4
with a 302 and a M5OD tranny. My question is, will a bad lifter (or two)
cause oil pressure drops after the engine is warmed up? What I mean by
drops is, while setting at a stop when the engine is fully warmed up, the
pressure will momentarilly dip
TIA
Roger

Lesson for the day:
Remember, when someone annoys you,
it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown.
BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm
and smack the a**hole upside the head.
