Re: How hot does your car run idle & cruise?
If it aint broke....
439 10>25:1 w/ LEAN azz tripower carburetion
1985 Z/28 clutch 7 blade GM fan
3 core Harrison, w/ modern cores
Carquest NEW pump ( took a few tries to get a proper casting btw )
RobertShaw Hiflow stat
**MANUAL TRANS** ( i think this makes a huge difference)
Cant get it to run hotter than just above t stat opening. Although I had to rebuild the engine after the old WP went unexpectedly, and it didnt take long for the oil rings to lose tension. Like 5-7 minutes of run time w/o noticing the temp gauge had pegged.
Stock works mint for me, but again, not having transmission fluid to cool likely makes it work as mint as it does. My Harrison is not a 67 and does have the AT ports on the bottom.
