Hi, I have a cabover. It's my first classic and I plan to learn mechanic with my truck. What do you mean when you explained about making sure the level stays up?
I have a high temperature problem. Though it stays a little over the middle of my temperature gauge if I stay cruising on the highway at 40mph and up. I don't want to burn my engine so soon, but I don't know where to start looking? I appreciate any input.
About the radiator. were you able to get a radiator for the actual truck or is it one that happens to fit? also was it a 2 tube or 3 tube (the number cooling tubes when looking from the front to the rear along the inside edge of the top and bottom tank) the one that was in mine when i got the van is close though i had trouble finding a lower hose. wound up cutting down a hose from another application. mine is not leaking but it's real old and want to be ahead of it before it fails. thanks in advance for any feed back you can share
EB to this point it's also a good idea to put a meat thermometer in the water to track when it opens. Works on the lower temp 'stats. Most scales end at 190 but you can get a feel for the other when the water hits a boil at 212 (depending on your altitude. i think lower at higher elevations?)
