Question Re: Over Heated 454

Radiator size!

Fan shroud and fan blade location into shroud?

You did burp it and make sure it is completely full?

New 160 to 180 temp. T-Stat and good w/p?

Air flow through the engine compartment?

All for starters.....


PS., Oh, almost forgot, do your hoses have coil springs in them to keep them from sucking flat and restricting flow?
