What # is your radiator cap? with aluminum radiator? Have 350 five speed 16# seems the norm, have good hoses and heater core and recovery tank
16 going to be ok! so far no heat problems.

Ideas, do not do's? Best? running in 100 degree and higher heat at times
Thanks

My aluminum down flow came with the recommended cap. I can't make heads or tails out of the # rating as it's in some scale foreign to me. Some of these alum. radiators are epoxied not welded. I would check with the manufacturer. Running a higher pressure cap than recommended could give him an out on your warranty:eek:
