powerstroker100,
B&M SuperCooler Transmission Cooler #70268

it took me about a one hr trip (running empty) to finally peak max temp.

WarOzz,
ok cool.so now i know i have a problem thanks to a real gauge.
i'll do a flush and use 4 gals of fleetguard from napa and 4 gals of distilled water.
new motorcraft thermostat and a new radiator cap.
so now i know my fan clutch is shot too.i'll have to bump up my priority list of mods to dual electric fans (plan on using salvage yard fans from the 3.8l cars.)
so i should never see 230 degree temps then.ok thanks,i'll set my warning at 230.

just goes to show what the needle hitting "N" on "normal" (what she always run at,and sometimes higher) can stand for lmao.yikes!

WarOzz & Festus,
great thanks! i guess i'll set my low pressure warning @ 10 psi then.
