Got a 67 RS/ss 350 powerglide rag top,at speed(55 or above) temp starts to climb and will not come down untill you drop below 55mph.Been throught all the items that generally fit this profile,added an extra cooler to trany too.At one time or another everything has been replaced and the trany has been rebuilt twice.Anybody got any ideas?
thanks

Sounds to me like the carb is lean. If it is a Q Jet the metering rods will stick down and lean it out.

You said you have done all the other stuff, but unless you KNOW that the radiator is good I would suspect it.

Do you have a thermostat in the cooling system? Some people think removing the thermostat will make the car run cooler, but at high speeds (high RPM) the coolant will pass through the radiator so quickly, it doesn't get cooled down enough..just a thought. Good luck
