My 327 doesn't seem to run hot. But, the radiator hozes sometimes don't have any pressure - even after running for quite a while, in warm weather. Engine runs fine. No leaks. Anyone think there is a problem brewing? I'd like to catch it early if so....

Don't turn a simple thing into a complicated subject.

If the engine runs good, doesn't leak, doesn't overheat, and doesn't boil-over, then you're OK. Get out and enjoy the car.

Usually that is a sign of a bad radiator cap provided you don't have any leaks. Either that or you don't have a termostat installed and the cooling system never gets hot enough to build up pressure.
