Hi everyone, I just left my blown '57 Belair in the garage. It may very well be sold soon and I was going over everything to make sure there were no obvious issues. I started the car and watched the temp. eventually climb to 190 degrees. (I don't recall what therm. I have in it). I idled this car for the better part of 25 minutes. I wanted to see how hot it might get sitting still. I waited and waited but it wouldn't move off the 190 mark. Now, I could drive this car down the road all day long at about 45 mph and it would never get above 190 degrees. Get in slower traffic or stop at a very long redlight (similar to ilding in the garage) and the temp takes off. Once, I recall it being a very hot, humid day in July, very slow moving traffic, and it creeped up to 230 degrees and I pulled off the street and shut it off. Just wondering why it will idle all day at 190 in the garage, but after running it a awhile and say at a redlight, the temp. will creep up. I just don't know why it acts this way. Can't figure out the difference. Any suggestions/ideas??? Thank you, Carmine.
