Fresh Big Block... Coolant Boiled Over
Okay guys. Fairly straight forward question, hopefully some straight forward answers.
67 SS 490 BBC Completely frshened up
AFCO Aluminum Racing Radiator (7 Lb cap)
Flex-a-lite Dual Electric fans
I installed the motor this past week. Started up on first try, almost dead on. Made a few adjustments, including rollers, all went well.
Brought the car home from the shop today, and about half way there, I saw my console temp guage start to climb around half way. Then, I turned the corner to my home and the guage needle pegged and buried ALL the way to HOT side. This was about 4 houses down road.
So I pulled it in the driveway, shut her down, and coolant was boiling over from the canister.
So i have a few questions:
1. What could of caused this?
2. What temp does that mean it went to?
3. What should I be checking for 1st?
4. Why me? (just kidding)
Thanks ahead of time.
