My overheating, radiator solution

Post by Vanquished on Sun Jul 16, 2017 4:03 pm

Thought I'd share the solution I used for my 350 overheating issue.  My van was running at 230 degrees in the matter of a few minutes.  Pretty extreme heat issue.  I recently replaced the water pump with a Milodon high flow pump.   Replaced the radiator with an aluminum one from Howe, part number 342A2816NF.  I also used an aluminum Howe surge tank, part number 3424.  I am using a 180 thermostat, with dual electric fans, pushing and pulling.  My van is now running at a steady 190 degrees, in 90 degree weather. Hope this can help anyone still searching for a cure. I'll try to post some pics.
